A different post from usual, I haven’t been posting and looking at your work because life gets in the way sometimes and you don’t know how to deal with the problems. Sometimes it can be quite paralyzing. I can’t talk about what is going on, but I can tell you how I deal with such situations.
The situation has made me angry, not at a person, just how life unravels itself for some people. Anger can eat away if you don’t deal with it. One of the ways I deal with it is to paint about things that are not close to me. Over the last two weeks I have focused on the situation in the 3rd World and produced for me political works.
This is an oil mixed media piece on hardboard 30in x 30in. The girl is a coloured pencil drawing I got out of a magazine. The pages are from a book on the colonization of Melanesia. Basically, it is about our world is putting pressure on Third World Countries with corrupt practices.
This is a wood cut A4 size and it is about the situation in many African countries, it makes you feel so helpless at times.
So that’s what I have been up to over the last two weeks, I am a lot calmer now and back to my usual quirky self! Channeling your emotions into art can be so healing.
Here’s a watercolour I did today I did from a photo I took last autumn, See I am calm now!
Have a happy Paint Party Friday everyone.
