PE: I don't know what to paint...
We all experience the loss of our muse from time to time. It can get quite challenging to even pick a subject for our next painting.

PE: Inner Artist
To find your inner artist you have to find your way first. Get inspired by other Artists and have fun! Before I tell you how to find your inner artist, I want to speak a little bit about inspiration.

Wonderful piece! be sure to include breathing in Volume 2. Not only is doing nothing but relaxing the breath a great way for ideas to surface, but the word inspiration actually comes from the set of Latin verbs connected with breathing...respirir is the root for our complete respiration but inspirir and expirir are inhaling and exhaling which have morphed into "creative spark" and "dying".

Hi! Your awesome article has been featured in the Artist's Descriptions here and here. Thanks a lot for writing this; I'll definitely come to it when I need ideas.

I don't care what the scientists say; Pluto is still a planet in my heart.

Not to be a typo stickler, but I believe you forgot to close the parentheses after you mention Pluto.
