As an artist I have an outlet in dealing with grief. I can get lost in my work, I paint and allow my heart to heal a little while doing something creative. I have know many artists dealing with their own medical issues or grief and they allow those emotions to do the painting. I just paint, this past weekend my friends where understanding of my need to paint. We had come together for the long weekend. I found a prefect little spot to sit and paint, a little deck that stayed shaded most of the day.
I worked about 15 hours while I was there, almost finishing the piece I had started in AZ. Have work will travel! Today I will wrap up the oil painting so it will have time to dry as it is going into the solo show that will be hung next week at Virginia Tech.
