Quietly and softly painting quiet and soft things this week in the wake of a diagnosis of Parkinson's. Art is the best coping mechanism I can think of and so I paint and journal and doodle and paste. I plan to continue to do so for a very long time.
This is another piece inspired by Mindy Lacefield's class Paint Your Story. The body is definitely different from what Mindy does in her paintings but the head is still not my own. For now, I sort of don't care so much as I appreciate the simple act of smooshing paint onto the canvas and seeing a character develop. It is a soothing process and exactly what I need right now.
