Perhaps the name for this piece is a bit over the top, but right now I stand by it. I wanted to do a piece that reflected the frustration I feel when my creative chi (life force) is not flowing. When my muse is engaged and I'm able to be productive I have a sense of well being. Things seem right. However, those times when either I have no inspiration, or I try to create and nothing works, I feel FRUSTRATION. Having been through this cycle multiple times, I know I just have to wait it out (insert Jeopardy music), but it's hard to be patient!
The pearls represent ideas that want to bubble to the surface, but unfortunately are trapped.

I had to toss in one of the most famous paintings in western art.
Do you ever have creative dry spells? Do you just wait them out, or is there some magic elixir you use to get things flowing again?
