Yep depression has been attempting a comeback, BUT although I do have my "down" days, I haven't sunk into a full blown depression, thanks to my artwork, which continues to be great therapy, and of course staying busy helps keep the negative thoughts away, too!
I thought I would share my recent works with you:
Project from Inner Goddess RevolutionariesI AM, the challenge was to create an I AM statement to aide in embracing my inner goddess using any medium of our choice; I chose watercolors, of course and opted to do a multi-color self-portrait with my I AM statement, and here is the result:
Hawk's Art ProjectsWe've done three projects thus far (1) a representation of the Element Water (2) create a tarot card for Samhain (3) our patron deity, and our most recent, (4) a representation of our life purpose:
Medium: Markers and Pens
I incorporated my Raven Woman painting and a Microsoft Word template to create my tarot card. I chose the High Priestess, mainly because I thought Raven Woman fits this card well and it's a great card for Samhain. The text at the bottom of the card says:
"Open yourself to the Mysteries. Use your intuition and let your inner voice guide you."
My Patron: Gaia
My life purpose is overcoming depression and being happy;
this depicts me rising from the darkness.
