Title or Location: Everything And Nothing At All
Most of my work revolves around mental health issues (Depression, ADHD) and some sleep-related issues, like sleep paralysis and just plain old nightmares. Sometimes the pieces, like this one, start as stream-of-consciousness explorations of ideas and emotions. This piece started as a sketch for another piece (a graphite one) but for which I ultimately decided to go in a slightly different direction. However, I always wanted to come back to it, and this time I decided to take it up digitall

Title or Location: ?Gratitude?
I am calling gratitude into my life. Time to ?stop and smell the roses.? Time to acknowledge the good before the ?bad?, and to understand that the bad is necessary. Since going to therapy and learning that I?ve been living life in a traumatized body, and that this is not just ?who I am? I?ve been angry. A lot of things done to me were out of my control, as I was a child. I can?t hear loud noises/voices without jumping and experiencing immediate fear. Someone can?t reach out to touch me without

20x24 mixed media on canvasI knew for two weeks before hand that I wanted to try a cityscape with a crow in it while utilizing texture paste and acrylic ink, to add to my new decor. I was experiencing sadness of loss one day and just had to paint. My mood is definitely reflected in this despite my original intentions. I added the old pocket watch in the crows mouth for the illustration of the stolen time.
