She pulled her tea bags out of the paper….looking at every Tea Tag….as if she were hoping to find her fortune, Or some magic words…That would make everything alright. She sometimes even almost ripped the tea bags themselves in her lust for freedom. Freedom from the pain that rocked her to sleep every night, only to Poke Her awake again after only 20 minuets, Freedom from the knowledge that she put herself in this situation, Freedom from the guilt that she beat herself with, Freedom from the Person she no longer recognized as herself….
She suddenly stood up straight, and put on her Brave Face, While silently fighting her demons as quietly as possible. She knew that pretending wouldn’t make the pain go away, or make her Brain stop agitating an already tense Psyche, But It would remind her….That some People have it worse, and She can take a Deep Breath….and Be Grateful.
Thus Prompting today’s Artwork number one: By the way….I don’t plan my drawings…they just happen….I want to get away from just doing my “Faces” and draw other things as well…but I found it so odd? that as I put on her mask….I was going for some “tribal” marks on her face? and they resembled “Teeth” on the mask…..How Cool! My way of 😉 DRAWING Out the Bad stuff!
It Really is OK….Some days are better than others…. We all Have Demons to battle, and sometimes they are like little brats and get out of control. But we DO manage.
My other Piece done today as well, Was from a YouTube Inspiration of mine, his channel is Toonboxstudio, and I Subscribe….Here is the link if you wanna give it a Whirl!
I think it pretty Awesome that I feel “comfortable” drawing now, so much that it took me so little time to draw this cartoon. I wish I would have paid attention when I was Younger and practiced more! I wonder Where my art would be today? food for thought!!
Have a Safe Tuesday Folks! Make sure you take at least a moment for Yourself….Its Important.
