The painting makes me healthier
I have for many years lived with self-doubt and still tried to be the "good" all the time. Posed very high, almost inhuman demands on myself both at work and privately, and this has resulted in me repeatedly sniffing at the famous "wall". The road to recovery is long, very long, and I will never be the same again. Something is very fragile.
But still, a lot has gotten better, much of the energy has come back. And I can thank the art for that. Finding my way back to my creative vein, allowing me to dedicate time to what I love without feeling guilty, to fully go into creation. Yes, art is very healing, and I know it has done wonders for many. There are even treatments based on painting.
That I myself can make use of the creation, partly because I really love it and know what I want to accomplish with it, while it heals me ... can it be better?
No, I don't think so.
