Anxiety into color.


Nervous, excited, frustrated, hopeful.

Those feelings as colors mix frantically, wildly, forming into a quiet yet powerful force.....

Pen and ink in Moleskine journal - (NFS)

Could be the start of something new. Could be nothing at all.

Are you confused by all of this? I know I am.

*exhales*

It's too soon to tell but right now I'm anticipating the possibilities.

We shall see.....

That picture reminds me of the picture art you sent me in the mail. It is still one of my most treasured possessions.

I am excited/intrigued by what this post means.

This pleasantly reminds me of a Spirograph picture. Are you too young to know what that is? :-)

That's so neat! I can't tell where one colour leaves off and another begins, and all the lines fit perfectly into the heart shape!

JuJu!

Haha, I know exactly what a spirograph is and didn't see the similarity until now!

Glad you like it, Brody! The colorful lines are meant to be forming into a heart. Like new love is being born again.

I appreciate everyone's feedback on this!

I love it! Putting color on paper can take away the stress and anxiety. I experienced that at The Painting Experience workshop that I attended a few months ago. I began full of overwhelming anxiety and ended five days later filled with peace that has remained. Color on paper can be therapeutic.

May I share with you what's been keeping me from reading and commenting on blogs lately?

"This Restless Life: a study of Central Coast California parks through photography, interpretive collage and stories" is a book project of which I'm in the midst. If you have the time and the inclination, would you take a look at my short video at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1778487749/this-restless-life?ref=email to learn more about the project? If you like the project, would you share it with your network of friends and family? Thank you sincerely. (I have a link to the video at the top of my blog page too.)
