The Answers Are In There Somewhere Aren’t They???

While I am manifesting no outward signs
of anxiety, I seemed to have put it right into
my painting. I am concerned for our
ancient one, he seems to be exhibiting
signs of cognitive decline. So maybe that
is where the anxiety lies, still,
I am rather fond of this little anxiety face
and the thought kept coming up
the answers are in there, the answers are in there,
aren’t they?

    Anxious beauty !!!! I have been struggling all day with that "bug" too. Part of me wonderfs if I am just picking stuff up from others or if it is really mine. Maybe a mixture…
    Enjoy the sweet moments with your old guy, lovely Corrine. I am sure the answers will come to us if we just breathe our way into them…
    Big Love !

    I think we start saying goodbye in our own way long before they actually go. I know with mine I tell her each morning how much I love and appreciate her and think that when the time comes, I will feel that I truly enjoyed every minute of my time with her. just love him up as much as you can, and the answers will be there. xx's

    You have captured the face of anxiety right on the dot! I love how the colour goes a little outside the line giving him (it? her?) a glow.

    What bittersweet love we give them, as kim said, breath out that anxiety & enjoy the here & now.

    Striking colors in both paintings, so juicy!

    ohhhh, I feel for your alarmed anxiety face, and yeah – I love it, too 🙂
    Our 17 year old is actually going on a med for her deep anxiety provoking (in her – she simply goes nuts panting and frantic every night) dementia. She's fine all day, but once the sun sets… it is saddening to see the decline and I really pick up on her anxiety. There are times I simply need to be in another room because it effects me so deeply at times… working it out in your art is great – perhaps part of why you aren't feeling it within. xo K
