If you keep working, you will get done...
That is my constant mantra these days as I weave. The tapestry is nearing the top, but I swear someone is un-weaving it as I sleep. I take breaks to paint little paintings, and, today and yesterday, to go through photo files to look for more subject matter.
When I am traveling, or even here when I am out with my camera, I see things I am sure will make fantastic paintings or tapestries. But then I go through the photo files and can find nothing that appeals to me. There are some great photos, but they don't seem to need to become anything else. I especially have a lot of florals.... and I don't really like painting flowers. The orchid photo above is one I took at the local botanic garden several years ago. Love the photo, but have no need to paint it or weave it. Not now, at any rate. So today I have nothing I want to paint, after weaving for most of the day. Guess I'll just go back to the loom! After all, 'if I keep working, I will get done....'
