Snippet Sunday

I haven't been doing anything creative these past couple of weeks, aside from dabbling with a watercolor landscape (Nile-scape). I'm getting frustrated with my inability to produce desired results with watercolors, though.  So today, I laid the foundation for an oil painting.  And I actually had fun.  It doesn't look like much yet, but I'll show a picture so that you'll have a before and after reference and to prove that, yes, I'm finally doing something again.


Another thing that is frustrating me is my writing. I've been stuck at the same spot for, literally, years now.  Since I've picked it up again, I've tried a different lead in to the situation, but I'm still not excited about it.  Frustrating doesn't really cover it, actually.  I thought the brain would have kicked me something to play with by now, but no. :-<  I don't know whether I should set it aside again and pick up my other novel or if I should give it more time.  Perhaps I'll try a new brainstorming activity to unlock the situation tomorrow...

What creative endeavors have you been up to?
