I know this may sound confusing...it's because it can be! Look, most artists will try to romanticize the artwork and they use words such as the 'artistic process'. Sounds cool right? Well yes, yes it does; however most of us (because of our great imagination) tend to stay in our minds and thus labor, and labor, and labor the conceptual aspect of it to the point...that we paralyze and not take action.
So remember, romanticize and enjoy the conceptual aspect of art...but move your hands while you're doing it.
