I started this painting while I was feeling really tired and burned out. I use painting as a way to process my feelings and thoughts that I can't put into words. In the dark areas of this painting, you can see where I went to town on it with lots of organic marks and movement. I got out whatever I was feeling in paint. As I continued to work on the painting, I started to mellow out and you can see that as the softness around the dark areas are light and airy. By the end of the paint session, I was feeling great and rested. Painting is a form of self-care for me.
