Try painting in a different place. If you paint inside, try painting outside. Prepare for outside and include a camera in case you don't get a chance to finish. Paint in a nearby park, at a dog park, where children play, where the shadows are interesting when they hit a house or other buildings. Take a lunch and make a day of it.
Have you every tried abstract work? Pick some of your favorite colors and experiment. Maybe put a pile of objects down and just paint shapes, not the objects. Cut magazine pages out, cut into different shapes and patterns, lay them down in such a way that is pleasing to you. Now go!
Sometimes it just takes making a change with get the excitement of art going again. Give it
