Re: Painting therapy

Hi Jared,

Thank you for sharing your worry for your grandad with us, very sorry to hear he's been so poorly. My boyfriend is back in hospital, now with added pneumonia which we could have done without.

Painting is fantastic, I have also taken up streaming while painting and find that it is an all encompassing activity, in order to do it you simply don't have space in your head for anything else, which is why I do it. Bliss

Be well Jared, and best of luck!

J.

Re: Painting therapy

In this time, I've left my clumsy abstracts and I've finished this rose (the leaf is not done yet though). I don't think it has any artistic meaning really, but it's the most technical thing I've done so far.



Cheers,
J.

Re: Painting therapy

Hello,

That is a fantastic painting!

My grandfather is actually doing surprisingly well according to the doctor. He is home, and recovering fast.

I hope your BF gets better.

I would post a picture of one of the paintings I did here in Oregon, but all the files are too large. I am working on it.

Good luck,

Jared

Re: Painting therapy

Thank you Jared!

if you open your photo with MS Paint, you can re-size it easily (save it with a new name so that it will not be confused with your original size).
it will have to be quite small.
Also remember to save it as a .gif file, as that is what wetcanvas allows.

cheers,
J.

Re: Painting therapy

That is super lovely! Maybe the trees and bushes in the foreground need a darker colour intermingled with a lighter colour for the snow, that will give you instantly even more depth.
The mountain is awesome, and the northern lights really well done!
thank you for uploading it!

Re: Painting therapy

Hello,

I was thinking the same thing. The trees need darker color, other than that, I think it is good. I think the mountain is perfect.

Anyway, thanks for the advice.

Jared

Re: Painting therapy

Hello,

All the paintings I did here in Oregon:



For my Grandpa



For my uncle, he requested it.



You have seen this one.



This one I did today. I was told by my therapist to "do a painting while I was having a panic." This is the result, it soothed my panic.

Proof that painting helps me and many others calm down.

Jared

They are very moving too.... I'm so glad he's on the way to a good recovery, but it must have been a heavy time.
