In this case I looked at my "Send Light" collage, which I had already posted, and I got a sinking feeling. Like "the wall." But I had already posted it so I could have just left it. But actually I was curious what it was that gave me the sinking feeling. The "Send Light" theme seemed out of sync with the overly cluttered, messy background. The two figures seemed out of sync with each other and the elephant didn't seem necessary in any way. But mostly it looked dark and confusing to me, sort of the opposite of what it would look like if I actually sent "light into the heart."
So after this exploration I went back into the collage (digitally) and changed things up, pushing past the wall and definitely finding myself working more easily with less struggle. Encouraging the artist's second wind whenever possible can be a great way to have a happy artist's life.
