Yesterday’s project…

This is poster sized. I made it for my Mom because she asked for another flower after I made her Mother’s Day present. She seemed to like it. I really didn’t do anything else yesterday, though. I managed to fire off an email to the place I was volunteering at so I can start that … Continue reading Yesterday’s project…

Still not okay

I don’t know why I’m so depressed. I just am. It just is. I’m tired of fighting it all of the time, so I’ve decided it just is. I was doing better for a while. I was even kind of okay. Maybe I was just kidding myself though. I’m super not okay again. Whatever. Original … Continue reading Still not okay

More pins!!!!!

I am having so much fun! I am designing some with my own art, and just making others with text. It’s really fun! I was super bummed last night when my machine seized up and I thought that I had broken it. I called this morning and the woman who answered the phone could not … Continue reading More pins!!!!!

Cycle

It’s scary how many times I’ve been here before. Bruised, bloody, beaten. Pieces of my heart scattered over the floor. Balancing the tightrope between life and death. “I can’t continue anymore.” Yet, something strange happens every time deep within my core. I crawl, stumble stagger and wobble until suddenly I soar. Older original art by … Continue reading Cycle

Iris for mom

It kind of looks like a bug. Lol. I don’t usually draw/paint a lot of flowers. I used watercolor pencils because for me, they are easier than using watercolors or paints. I think it will be reasonably presentable if I go get a frame for it (it’s 8x10). So yeah. I hope this solves my … Continue reading Iris for mom

Ordered a toy!

I ordered a machine for making pinbacks (like the buttons pictured above). I’m so excited! I’ve been looking at them for probably two years. I wanted to get a good one and I didn’t want to spend the money, but my mom helped me out this time. I’m thinking about starting an Etsy store if … Continue reading Ordered a toy!

My symbolic art

My therapist pointed out that my art is usually very symbolic. I guess. It’s a step up from “hospital art” usually. Sometimes it’s other stuff. Lots of times it’s stuff like this. I am feeling trapped by my meds. I’m going to keep taking them, don’t get me wrong. I have been on them so … Continue reading My symbolic art
