After months of agonizing, awake off and on all night, and thinking about them all day, I finally finished. Once I got my right brain working, and started seeing how the acrylic colors looked over the water colors, I began to really get into it. The first one I have posted, but the last one is the one above and is now finished.
I know my friend will love them. They are very colorful and happy. That is really the only way I could work on them.
They had to let me know it was ok to color them happy!
Are they happy to you, or do you prefer something more subdued? I always love color, color to me is joyous and happy. It helps ground me, and energizes me. We are all so different. Many of you would prefer softer colors, calming colors, colors that help you relax, & possibly help get you in a meditative state. I understand that also.
Let me know what you think, what you prefer, and even let me see the kind of art you love. All art is from the heart, that must be why we are so darn sensitive about showing it. No judgement here! I’m struggling just like everyone else, and the more I do the better I get at it.
My son Chris tells me that, “it’s the journey, not the finished product. ”
Art is healing, it’s a process, and we always have it when we most need an outlet.
