Not necessarily a lot of art stuff, but you know, stuff.
We’ve had a scare with my dad’s health recently-and it seems to have put my art making in a serious funk. It’s pretty much put everything into a serious funk,actually.
We’re praying a lot, we have to keep it in God’s hands.
I know this and everything but it’s still hard.
I’m the youngest of six,my dad is 82 years old.
He’s an artist as I’ve said here before and a Huge inspiration to me.
It will be okay.
I believe this.
I have used most of the month and used it to making party decorations for my nephew’s baby girl who just turned one.
The theme was Hello Kitty and I think I did okay. It wasn’t an exact replica of her but that actually made me feel better.
Like I was drawing/painting my version of Hello Kitty.
(Have you seen Shepherd Farley’s OBEY version by the way? Love it…decided it didn’t really say one year old party though..:)
Today however I decided to go ahead and try painting something. I actually stopped doing laundry because I felt like I had to paint that moment.
It’s still a work in progress but just starting this really made me remember what I love art most for….therapy. I felt a lot better as I worked on this, possibly better than I had all month.
So,I’m going to keep praying and keep painting and try not to let myself shut down.
I function much better when there is some kind of creating in my daily life.
