At first I thought it was a tree trunk. I like the curves. I like the color palette here, too! I struggle with color so I notice when a palette works. I like it! 😀🌈

Wow, that's really cool! the flower forms are so delicate, reminds me of old Asian art. How are you doing, sister?

I'm okay today. Getting some work done. Diffused a heated argument with my wife -- I've been meditating, and I think it helps me to step out of the moment and realize what we sound like. My meds are stable, though the side effects on my sleep suck.

Do you feel like your medicine is supporting you any better? You're in touch with your doc?

Yeah in touch with doc and therapist. Having highs and lows like bigs ones. Sooooo exhausting but it’s way better than I used to be just an extremely tortured soul who could barely do anything now im doing it all. Almost 😅 working on getting stronger. I’m grateful.

I see an aerial view of someplace I would like to be alone. Different colors showing water, paths, forest.

I may be way off but today that's what I see. Probably because I wish I was there.

Great work ⭐️

It’s for the viewer so really whatever you see is what it is.

It’s a woman ... with knees folded and hair hanging down

Is she the brown?

That’s what I saw ☺️

I see an anatomy picture of a person's lower head/chin, neck and shoulders.

Beautiful colors :) xx

Oh funny

For me it reminded me of how I feel in my anxiety. You are good.

I see the inside of a tree. Probably plain on the outside like a regular tree, but complex on the inside

Thanks yeah life had been tough for me but things seem to be getting better in some ways worse in others trying to just have a positive attitude and remember I’m moving forward even on bad days I learn from them and I’m they make me stronger. What is your story if you feel like sharing?

Starrlight in reply to Jamie2018

Not boring. And it sounds like my story too. Keep sharing, it helps.

yeah its hard but worth it to have 3 day weekend i work 10 hr. days for 4 days then 3 days off

I see a woman entwined within the bark of a tree trunk....mother nature in turmoil?

Beautiful colours ...wonderful work!

Thank you Jomico!!!

Interesting drawing Starrlight. From first glance I thought your pic represented growth perhaps growth of yourself. I was then able to see a woman upside down maybe feeling a little lost in chaos. I do love art and I think we can express ourselves through it. It can be a kind of release. Bit like writing down troubled thoughts. Must get back to my art pad! Great sketch anyway. x

I’d like to see what is on your art pad 😌

I see a lady nurturing..or wanting to nurture..

Beautiful. It does look like that.

I see is a tree spirit, the very soul of the tree. Did I get it wrong?

Awesome! The person who views the art can never be wrong. It is what you see. I had something in mind yes but that doesn’t even matter so much in my opinion what I see unless I am the looking are artist we are talking about. You make it your own by how you see it what it means to you from your experiences and ideas in your life. That’s what I think.
