I haven’t picked up my camera since February and to be honest I haven’t missed it.
Instead I have picked up my paint brushes and have started on a personal journey taking me into the world of abstract art. Sitting and painting has really helped me this year with the loss of my beloved Mum (it doesn’t get any easier), my lovely Mother In Law and my cat of 16 years.
Loosing myself in my paintings has brought me much pleasure at this time and it has given me a greater understanding about abstract art. The colours, the energy and the freedom of applying the paint to paper makes me want to get up in the morning with something to look forward to.
I feel that there is something very powerful and special as art being a therapy and I can honestly say personally, that it has helped me enormously.
