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"

  1. Some people like to spend hours working on their garden, I wish I were one of them.
    Since you mention depression, I’m right there with you. I’ve been crying for days, but there’s really nothing going on in my life to cry about, unless you count Boredom with a capital B.
    It’s nice that you’re donating your art. I think I’d like to do that for animal charities.

    1. Sorry to have gotten back to you so late, Arlene. I’m really sorry about your depression. Have you seen a doctor about it?
      Yes, animal charities are a good idea, it might motivate you to do some work.
