I think the painting was in an effort to reconnect with the therapy space where I don't judge myself in the way I do outside of the office. I love how the White Stripes neatly summarize therapy and art making in their 53 second song "little room".
Daily Painting #17 is two different daily paintings, portraits of my shrink.
This week I recieved some lovely comments on facebook regarding my ability to show up; good bad and ugly. I replied that I have discovered an unexpected link, an inverse relationship between my willingness to lower my expectations and my ability to do stuff and be happy. L.R. (above) has helped me with the earth moving work of accepting where I am so that I can move forward.
