My emotions were pretty intense when I first started out this drawing. I began by drawing the bold black lines which represent cracks on the ground. The intensity of the emotions died down when I was able to finish coloring those lines with black and I was finally eager again to include the soothing elements of nature in this piece.
I found that I am more comfortable expressing my emotions through art than through writing, because the language that art speaks is more abstract and at least I can show the finished product to the whole world without them discovering the real message behind it. Whereas with writing I tend to be more candid with what I am feeling and it puts me in a vulnerable position.
Anyway, I hope your week is off to a good start! God bless!
