Inspiration from a friend

Inspiring a friendInspiration, why is it so hard to find sometimes? For a long time Ive felt as though I had none, or at least, very little of it. Like my imagination had just disappeared. I don’t know how or why but its like my mind was just empty, a blank slate, and quite frankly… That sucks. Recently however I feel as though it has come back, not on its own however. A very good friend found it and brought it back to me. He told me that he loved my art because I really try and you can see the effort put into it. He also told me that I should draw what I liked and whatever I wanted to. Thats what really got me, I guess being so busy and not having time to draw a lot I got stuck. I stopped drawing things that I liked because I was trying to hard to think of something that other people would like. The reality is that people like my art because they already like what I like or they just plain like it! So yeah, 2 simple sentences and I recovered something I had lost. He brought it back to me without even having to look for it, I am so grateful for that. Thank you! It reminds me of another when a different friend once told me, “I don’t want to copy, I want to create my own” But nothing lost nothing gained right? Now that person is having a hard time in their life. I just wish that there was something that I could do to help, but it seems like there isn’t anything. I would love to give him a painting and hope that I can give him even just a little bit of what he gave back to me.
