Ever had one of those moments when your emotions get the best of you and it reflects in your artwork? Of course you have! Every artist has those moments… … right? I was due for surgery the day before I made this (which I titled Vanity Mirror) and for some reason I just felt the need to express all my anxiety. My body has gone through many changes that have been sudden and unwelcome. I can’t eat like I used to, I’m always in pain, I’m on (what we lovingly refer to in my household) a craptastic amount of drugs, I’ve had to cut off my hair (which was fan-frickin-tastic! let me tell you my hair was sexy) I’ve lost a lot of weight because I’m sick and because I didn’t lose it in a healthy way I feel I look very unnatural.
But I have a wonderful support system in my family, a moderately excellent medical team and I still get to make the art I love. So what’s my problem? I don’t know I’m human I guess 🙂 For all the emotional, angsty artist out there… welcome me to the club! Happy viewing my inner turmoil guys 🙂
