Thanks to all your suggestions and support, together with a bit of drawing around my wire photographs, I've been rescued from my creative block!

Your help in overcoming my 'stuckness' has been just what I needed. Even just the thought of a cycle ride in the countryside sent me into raptures - playing with and walking my dog is the best thing I can ever do, I'm investigating spoonflower  and definitely switching off my computer more.
Again & again I come back to Keri Smith for inspiration - I just love her rebel's manifesto.
Thank you all for your friendship - it means a lot.

I'm loath to use the word 'stuck', however this is how I feel at the moment. I'm inundated with work, pitching for new contracts which is great for my bank balance - although it completely empties my head of all creative ideas for my own projects and this blog.
Visiting other blogs - seeing everyone writing wittily and creating fantastically - the more I do this the worse the 'stuckness' becomes.
I probably need to get away from this computer and go and play! Any ideas....?

I'm seeing eyes everywhere

I looked round and found these trees watching me....

At last . . .

At last some sunshine after months of greyness. It's still cold but for the last few days the sun has been shining and the sky is blue. This winter will certainly make me appreciate Spring (my favourite season) even more than usual.

Sometimes it's good to look at things with a new perspective. For this illustration and for propagate I've used textural photos as a background for my drawings.
