You know how something really unexpected and awful happens in your life, regarding a close friend or relative, or significant other? You get into an argument, or get hurt by someones words, and feel miserable? Well I guess that works for me sometimes, artistically speaking of course.
Yesterday I tried to capture how I was feeling about a situation I have been dealing with the last few days, a very upsetting tear-fest of a situation, that for me could only be described with paper and paint. This is the result! When I usually paint watercolors I normally draw it on a plain piece of paper, then transfer it to watercolor paper, but yesterday I just drew directly onto the watercolor paper itself, and ended up with something that REALLY expressed how I felt. I am so pleased with it, cause it ended up being one of those all-nighter art quests where you can't put it down? Don't you just love it when that happens? :-)
Anyways, I dunno about any of you guys, but do you feel that way when you get emotional? do you have to create just to get it out? Would love to know how fellow artists deal with it using their talents. :-)
