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.
