Exspressing A Mood

Sometimes, in ones life, a day of problems and unhappiness comes along. As an artist, I find that just to go to your studio and sit down with a canvas and paint it out. Here is one of those paintings I did some time ago. I feel it really helped me and as I look at it--I see just how really unhappy I was. But it was the best thing for me to do. Everything got right again. When I look at this painting, I remember how blessed I am to be an artist and to express my mood in this way. An artist has a great way of coping with problems. Hope you have tried this and let me know what you think. Milligiftsmith

Dear Millie when I started painting this picture, my father was gravely ill. appeared in my mind thousands of red flowers that grew, and what would be a background picture became this book I called "before the green turns off." and my father has died, the flowers were here to me at the moment before his death. In this picture I recover. Thank you for teaching what you know. Millie're a genius

Painting is often the best therapy! It can change your view to the world as you unravel your own feelings!
