Art Therapy Returns

I was feeling sad, so I started thinking about how happy I was when I was drawing.  And then I started thinking about someone who makes me happy by just being herself.  And that's pretty much when I spent an hour putting this together.  When the hour was up, I put everything away and "called it" done. The purpose was not perfection, it was release.

Yes, I see 1000 mistakes, and wish I could spend 1000 hours fixing them, but as far as a 60 minute 4X6inch study on smiling to myself, this did the trick.

Love it. I just decided to buy some new water colors. Maybe we can come up with an art gallery show for mothers of 3, who have busted their ankles, and inspite of having a million things to do, sit around drinking coffee and drawing. Just saying. :)
