Life has a circular cycle to it. Sometimes I can get a lot accomplished and I stay dedicated and on task. (Okay, I've stripped all the bedding in the house, done 10 loads of laundry, gotten it folded and put away, vacuumed, done the dishes, sketched several pic ideas, worked on a watercolor, exercised, showered, and its only 10:30 in the morning.... YES! ) Other times I have to force myself to get anything done. (I had a shower and I'm dressed before 2pm, doesn't that count?!) Yeah. Well, it happens.

This is  one of the down slumps for me. The kids are almost out of school, spring is here mostly and trying to decide if it wants to rain, snow, or be hot. I have quite a few reference pics ready and waiting for me to start planning out the final picture and I can't seem to get going. I feel bad about it because I haven't sat in my studio for a little over a week now. I wander it from time to time, but only to grab something off a shelf, like my favorite writing pen, and then leave again. I cannot tell you how many projects are half done or just barely started and then I put them down and haven't gotten back to them. Its a good thing I have a room to put them all in or my poor husband would be going nuts with all the projects waiting for me to work on them.

So my question for all you readers out there is, how do you deal with a down period? Do you push past it and keep working or do you give yourself a break?
