Wordless Wednesday – Meh

Poetry – Inverted

All I've known
is dysfunction.
I began to bloom
locked in the closet,
hidden under the stairway,
abandoned
in pitch black rooms -
so is it any wonder
if my blossoms grew
inverted?

Sometimes You Need A Lot of Color!

Sometimes when making art, I feel the primary color rainbow shouting my name and have to indulge in a burst of brightness! Here are a couple recent colorful creations…

Poetry – Stuck

holzfigur-980784_960_720

Stuck
not sure where to go
so many roads
limited time
stalled
pick foot up
put back down
repeat.

Am I moving forward
or standing still?

The shadows move
but my footprints
stay right here.

Abstract Art Makes Me Happy

Here are a few recent abstract ACEO artist trading cards I made. Abstract art is probably my favorite genre to make and enjoy. So much room for personal expression, experimentation, and happy mistakes!

Purging Depression Through Art

Here are a couple recent ACEO artist trading cards I made when I was struggling through a nasty depressive episode. I find creating art like this is therapeutic, even if I don’t feel like doing it at first.

New Painting: Shiny Happy People

While I was painting this acrylic picture last night, trying to capture the burgeoning depression I could feel weighing on me, the REM song Shiny Happy People came on the satellite channel I was listening to. I felt that song perfectly captured how I was feeling, as I always felt it was a rather tongue-in-cheek, mockery of a song. I decided to name the artwork after the song, so here is my version of Shiny Happy People:

After the Battle is Over…

DSC08912

I’m feeling a bit like this weird-looking guy I sketched the other day. Dazed, confused, and like I’ve been through the wringer. I am so very happy I won my SSDI case, but I’m almost a little in shock and kind of feeling like “what do I do now”? After fighting for something for so long, it is kind of weird to actually get it and have the fight over. I’m not complaining at all, I am SO very thankful, but my brain just needs some time to adjust and move from the mentality of scarcity and fear to one of feeling more secure.
