A couple years ago I was talking to someone who had traveled all over the world and held a number of interesting jobs. He said, "One day I was on a mountain looking out over this beautiful scene in another country, and I thought, This is it, I've seen it all...I feel like I've been everywhere and done everything, and there's nothing exciting left to do or see on this earth. Do you ever feel like it's all been done, and there's not much to look forward to anymore?"
And I said, "No."
Did a painting last week, and it was a struggle that almost went into the trash. I've got to paint more.
I tricked myself into finishing this out by involving a sea creature, which keeps me interested.
