    I've totally lost my mojo,and have come close to chucking the hobby altogether.So i'm getting rid of these 2 busts as they nearly ended up in the bin,as they're rough as a badgers arsehole.
    Anyone interested ,hopefully from the U.K.,give me a shout. £20 each,which will go to, i might buy something else fund.MAYBE.

    Don't be daft it's just the emotional reaction of not being invited to the Royal Wedding.
    Go right out of your comfort zone and paint something a bit bonkers...

    Your "rough" jobs on those busts look pretty damn good to me. If that's losing mojo then I'll settle for your dregs.

    I feel the same Brian. Just no motivation since last year, lack of interest and to many crap things going on in life most days.

    Might be having the sell off of the century myself soon.

    Dont do anything rash, You have spent a life time building up your collection. Think long and hard before doing anything. Then Think again.

    I've about 60 figures/busts in my collection,but if I get sick of painting a particular figure,and have to get rid,as it would be be at the back of my mind,all the frustration it put me through.Ive been doing this for some time now,and I've flogged a few that I went off.
    Just one of my little quirks.

    Dont jump Brian we cant lose an oil painter with your talents, I am 60 this week and cant work with acrylics at all so still struggling on with the oils but its seeing the results that you and the other top class oil painters get that keeps us underlings inspired and its working.
    Tommi take a deep breath arrange to meet up with Brian and go out and get drunk give it a week for the hangover to disappear and get the brushes out again.

    When I lost the sight of my right eye a couple of years back I jacked it all in. I started throwing stuff out (which I very much regret) and then had second thoughts and packed what was left away. Recently just got the urge to see if I could still do it and discovered I could still achieve even if it wasnt up to my previous standard. Enthusiasm came flooding back with avengance. New brushes and paints obtained and onwards and upwards. It's a blip, don't give up.
