Depression Watercolor Painting
A while back I was in a really dark place. I am not always sure what brings on these moods. I am on medication for depression, but once in awhile I feel sucked down into a whilrpool of scary thoughts. My art helps pull me out of this place when it hits me.
Also, friends help, too. Recently I shared where I was at and my idea of painting my mood with a friend, and he encouraged me to do it. So, Steven, thank you. It helped tremendously! 🙂
In this painting I was thinking about the raw feelings of loneliness, fear, darkness, and for some, suicidal thoughts. I hope this comes across. I have actually thought about doing a series of paintings depicting depression since it is an illness that affects so many, many people. For anyone who is experiencing any of these feelings presently, talk to someone. Get help. Every life is worth more than its weight in gold. Never give up on yourself!
Have a great day, and give someone you love a hug. Or ask someone for a hug if you are in need of one!
