I find that art is the answer to most things for me. Feeling sad? Make art. Feeling joyful? Make art. Feeling overwhelmed, thrilled, lonely, ecstatic? Make art.
It’s not always easy to drag myself into the studio. It can feel as though that empty canvas is mocking me, daring me to come up with something good. But if I stay devoted and show up to the work, I find that the muse of creation always joins me.
Creation is life for me. They are one and the same. Expression is the only way through. Thank goodness I’ve figured that out. Saved lots of money in therapy.
