Welcome Summer and Call for Inspiration

This little painting reminds me of summer....this little swimmer girl was finished a few years ago in the summer and it reminds of a better time when I was feeling more creative and inspired.  I used a crackle medium for the background then added a walnut stain for definition of the cracks.  I glued some of my vintage micah on the blue to simulate the glitter of water.

I'm having a really hard time getting inspired - I can't decide what I want to paint or how I want to paint it.  Painting my angels and girlie girls used to bring me such peace and now it such a burden to paint them now.  I've taken a break from them and I've been painting abstracts.  But even the abstracts have become burdensome.  

I need to find my way to paint with joy again.If you have suggestions, please pass them my way....I welcome suggestions!
