Happy to announce my painting ‘Cascade’ from my new series ‘Subtle Bodies’ was accepted into ViewPoint 50 national exhibition. The show is presented by the Cincinnati Art Club, the second oldest art club in the nation. Excited to be a part of a great show!
I was inspired to paint this when I began coming out of a depression I had been stuck in. I realized I had been feeding myself all these negative thoughts for years and they finally made me collapse. Eventually I began slowly to re-inforce my positive thoughts, be more kind to myself and the more I did this the healthier I became.
Our thoughts are like the flow of water. In constant motion waterways begins as small brooks amassing to creeks then rivers that reach the ocean. Like rivers, our thoughts, actions, and beliefs practiced everyday build and become deeper. For myself I had to recognize the negative thoughts and bad habits and began replacing them with more positive, healthier options. I do believe we have a choice to be happy, it just takes practice and discipline.
