It’s been a while since I have updated Selina’s World.  I’ve doing a lot of creative writing and articles too.  My days have been about creating images in my mind that I can translate through the written word into my reader’s mind.

This last weekend I finally had the creative bug to paint and so that is how “An impression of Spock” came into the world.  I sat on the couch and allowed myself to fall into colour, light and shadow.  I allowed the right side of my brain an opportunity to speak to me in symbolic language.  I needed that more than I can say.

You can see my artwork above.  It is completely hand drawn from eye and there are still some things to work on in this artwork, but I am pretty happy with it.  It is watercolour and acrylic on pastel paper.  I had a ball doing this piece of artwork.

I also wrote and published an article on how art has helped my heart to heal.  It is about art therapy, for those who might want to jump across to Self Avenue and check it out.

I hope your days and nights are filled to the brim with creativity.
