This painting turned out to be a lesson in not having anything as "too precious" and to always think I can make MORE good art if I I screw something up temporarily. A good lesson in being done and undone. "A Thought is a Thing And Then It Take Wings" 2018, 30x40
Fluid Self vs. Rigid Self
30" x 40" Acrylic Painting

Took this image from my morning nature walk in my backyard today. I love the story this image tells about nature and overcoming obstacles/creating symbiotic, mutualustic, or parasitic relationships with obstacles to resources. It makes me think about our own relationship to the earth and how we treat it.
Do something nice for the earth today. 🌍💚🍄

I haven't been painting this week, but I have been doing lots of nature and mushroom photography. This week I've seen, hawks, snakes, deer, and a turtle, plus frogs, beetles, and so many lizards. Here are a few collages I've made of my fungi! Next week..painting! And probably lots more nature work!
I work in little time spurts, so I always cover my acrylic palette with plastic wrap so my paints don't dry out! I've been lucky to be able to use painting as my therapy as I focus on healing. I've had to shift a lot of my work practices to accommodate my new skills, and I'm feeling productive again as a human.
How does your creative practice support your health and well being?
