I am so excited to write this post. For a while now, I have been wanting to show my art studio to you all. M was kind enough to allow me to convert an unused room in our house into an art studio. It is my own special place to be alone and paint. I have written before about how much art had helped me therapeutically. When I am struggling with urges to use a behavior I can paint and express my emotions that way.
I love my little art space and that I have it all to myself. I have made some paintings about my recovery that I also want to share. Both of the following paintings are ones that I have hanging above my bed. They remind me to keep going in my recovery. I made this painting a while ago and I have been meaning to share it. The tree is totally disproportionate but that really does not have to be a big deal. The rainbow colors are actually the chakra colors being represented. I just love this piece. This peace is very powerful to me. All those words inside the skeleton are how I feel when I am deep in my disorder. The words outside of it show how light and freedom come to me once I turn towards recovery. Here are the paintings hung on the wall about my bed.
I love to paint and I am not the best at it but I enjoy doing it and that is what matters most of all 🙂
