September 11 Anniversary

Artist on Ground Zero

On this anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks, I thought I’d share this video of an artist who painted pictures at Ground Zero.


A little self-healing time

I am, at the moment, clinically depressed.  I know art can’t restore an imbalance in serotonin, so while I wait for my medication to work, I decided to do a little work just for fun.

The thought was to just do a picture of a garden, with no particular plan.  I decided to add interest by putting in part of an old car.  Progress is slow, my judgement is off.  So I’m working piece by piece.

I do believe doing art can be healing for the artist.  For this reason, besides doing this for myself, I am doing this for a charity.   It’s a 4×6 inch piece that is going to be sent to an organization that raises money for arts for cancer patients.

Anyway, the thought of a garden as healing..wouldn’t that be a paradise?  If one were to just contemplate peaceful surroundings with flowers, I think that would be a healing subject matter."Classic Car"
