Here are some paintings I’ve done over the last few years. I hope that they bless you somehow. All were painted out of a long season of deep depression. Painting these (and a lot of others) was the only thing that kept me sliding off the edge. Some might ask, how can you create these out of your Bipolar Disorder? To be honest, I am just as mystified as you. None of these are ‘perfect,’ But made in a time when I was under a certain ‘strain.’ But they are what they are.
“An artist has been defined as a neurotic who continually cures himself with his art.” (Lee Simonson)
All of these paintings have been given to various non-profit organizations, for the handicapped and the mentally ill. To me, that is the place they belong. “If you have two loaves of bread, keep one to nourish the body, but sell the other to buy hyacinths for the soul.” (Herodotus)
One thought on “Some of My Paintings”
Lovely therapy. Here’s the first thing I thought when I saw the crows. And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them.
