Creating Art in the Emotional Storm
Right as I realized I need to move (AGAIN) away from Unity and into a larger town, needed to find a new place to live, needed to find a new job, needed to start a new chapter of my life...I started to create. In times of great stress and turmoil, I usually find inspiration to create. My long term relationship of three years was over... I was left trying to pick up the pieces. Like always, I gravitate towards the healing power of art.
One of the things I've done in the last few weeks besides the Maine Draw A Thon 2 and visiting the Portland Museum of Art and Spindleworks, is set up paint a thons on my webcam. Just painting and chatting with folks while I do so. The interactive parts makes the loneliness of painting pretty much vanish. You can see the wicked cats I posted last week that was done during these painting shows, and here are five others I have created.
