Oh my gosh y’all! I just found this amazing article! I was researching the reason why coloring takes my pain away for my series on Alleviating my Fibromyalgia pain and I found this spectacular article on it! I had to get let this information out asap! Read it!
“Creating art is a very effective way to stimulate the brain and anyone can do it. Learn the many benefits of art and why it’s so helpful for mental health.”

I ran across this post today. “From the depths of despair” I said. This painting and all the others from last year, almost got thrown in the trash. I’m trying to purge all the things that remind me of the horribleness of years past. Predominantly 2016.
The pain and mental anguish was so great that my only refuge was paint on canvas. I see them now with the realization, that as I suffered, I was being bamboozled. I see all of the paintings now and I’m reminded of this.
I have a fresh start and the things that remind me of the horribleness will be tossed away.
“How Deep the Hollow” lives on to see another day. Although, it may be placed in a far room in the house. Or under a couch cushion.
I am set free. I am free. I live without effort or sadness… dammit.
I’m back to creating prints of my artwork for sale.
Here’s my latest:
Great news! I sold my first piece of art today. Someone from Switzerland bought a t-shirt with my blue moose design on it! My first sale of my art! I’m doing a simple and careful happy dance!
