This time of year makes me long for family ties. So how do we fix this? Create it of course. I am posting a three step watercolor of Tom and below you will see me and the rest of the "Fam".
If you are not a painter you can create family in the same way by collecting objects, cooking, listening to music or being quiet and stay "tuned" into what your inner soul is telling you .
What I have learned so far:
I always find that my heart is my art . I can work things out that I feel deeply. When I lost my father I found myself obsessed with painting a white Adirondack chair. It was only after I had painted this chair for a month that I realized I was painting and mourning his loss. He loved to hike in the Adirondacks of New York State and the empty chair? Well that is kind of obvious isn't it?
I am a watercolor coach, watercolorist, and author.
