Working oneself out of a rut

Work in Progress (peony lilac narcissus), 24x30", acrylic on canvas

I've been stuck. And we all know that the best way to get unstuck is to work through the stickiness.  So, this past weekend, this piece has been extracting the negative stuck feelings (ambivalence, procrastination...).   

A note on the subject of the painting... the trees around New England have been reduced to bare branches in the sky and the sun is going down around 4:30 pm.  Winter is not my favorite time of year. I can hardly describe the elation that Spring brings to me. So, I decided to bring Spring to myself!!
