To Cut Through Procrastination

8 3/4" x 5 3/4" oil on canvas panel titled "Black Knife"

Here is the first painting done out of my new studio. I wanted something simple to do yet something that had some meaning. I can't help it, I just can't create an image or idea that I don't care about or doesn't mean anything to me.

I chose the large black-handled knife that was originally my Mom's. It said to me, "Cut through your procrastination, your inertia and blockages to creativity." So that was the image I needed to paint. I chose the green background as it gives it a slightly unnerving quality. I wanted to explore that.

What images could you use to cut through your own personal blockages, inertia or procrastination?
