Day 28 and the painter's mind
I think that somehow I put my feelings into my paintings. I don't know always if that comes through but I do seem to be told that people sense emotion in the faces. I think there was a time that I wanted to paint emotion. Probably somewhere in my life I lacked approval and so my tendency is to seek approval for what I do .. for who I am. I don't always feel this way. I don't really paint for approval. I paint or make or stitch or create anything because I love to do it. On the really bad days.. all I want is to be told I am lovable or worth loving. I suppose everyone wants that. Life happens and it isn't always pleasant. I'm grateful that my experience has taught me that feelings pass and something will distract my train wreck of thoughts and my mind will go down a road that is more pleasant and less emotional. I will get over myself haha. Thank goodness.
So .. I have no story to tell today.
I will be back tomorrow.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to own this face for $28. Painted on my mom's wrapping paper and one of her handwritten letters to her father. Sewn together and then painted with acrylic paint. Approx 8x10.
