Throw me a life raft

Throw me a life raft

This was how I was feeling the other day. Dark cloud over me, feeling like I was defeated. As I was painting the image of a life raft came to me. I added it as the last thing I painted. When I start a painting, I never quite know how it will end up looking, but it is obvious that our paintings are extensions of ourselves. My paintings have a voice of their own. ( I don't feel like that anymore :) .

I'm glad you are feeling better! Ironically, when I first saw the drawing and hadn't read any of the copy, I thought that was a hoola-hoop around her waist and she was exhausted from playing.
