the sweetness.

Collage, Paintings




i was asked a question on friday that stuck with me the whole weekend – how does creating art make you feel? it was a simple question that i had trouble answering. after rummaging around my brain and my apartment, i finally found the answer.

cathartic release is a term i use frequently when discussing art. however, most of my artlove comes from getting lost in the process – setting up paints, pumping up the music, and ‘working’ on a piece for the next few hours. i recently finished this book by John Green and his quote, “i fell in love the way you fall asleep. slowly then all at once,” perfectly describes how i fell for creating.

i fell so hard, i even shared my dessert with this piece.

One thought on “the sweetness.

  1. Maybe you should call it career sandwich…caught between what you like to do and what you’d loved to do! I am dying for an Oreo right now!
