It’s my 60th day of practicing the daily draw/paint, so I did a self portrait. I woke up this morning feeling light-hearted. Over the week-end, I processed some lingering emotions over a heartbreak by writing a letter, and today I woke up with pleasant memories of things I did with that person.
I’m letting go. I’m getting lighter. My field of vision is not as clouded and I can celebrate life again.
In working on paintings of my ancestors and my children, I’ve felt a sense of connection. The energy and color of the past passing through me and onto my children.
Acceptance of things past, dreams of the future — heartbreak and healing and growth — that’s the stuff of life.
I’m drawing daily to help manage depression, long-term disability, and life in general. If you’d like to see the beginning of this project, you can see it here. You can also follow me through WordPress or on Facebook.
