A real crisis

I am experiencing a true crisis in my painting career. My drawings have been a pleasure to do but have kept me very busy with little time to paint, in fact no time to paint. So now I find when I try to paint I feel completely inadequate. Threw out four canvasses today out of total frustration.

Has anyone had a similar moment of crisis in their careers? How did you handle it? I am waiting a month before Marvin arrives in Cleveland and I know it will help me immensely or I will crumple into a pile of emotional tears because NOTING looks good...

Sorry I am bemoaning this experience, it would just be nice to know I am not alone and that I WILL get through this stage in my painting career. I want to paint, uninterupted without the weight of a commission calling out to be completed...
