This piece of work I made is probably the most significant to me, I wish the red colour stayed, it’s kind of brownish now.
The reason behind this is because I showed a person I trusted a picture of old cuts, and he replied with “Yeah but they’re not that deep” this was said months ago, but only triggered me recently.
I thought maybe documenting how I’m doing through art would be a helpful idea, and it is. I feel like this piece of art is my first “proper” painting, it’s not of a pretty girl, it’s of how I’m feeling and expressed in a traumatic way; with my blood.
I’m not saying paint canvasses with your own blood, but maybe express your feelings in more progressive way, art is great because it’s never wrong. If you think you’re terrible at it, don’t show anyone, do it for yourself, do a self portrait and scribble red pen all over it, rip pages up if you feel angry, write every single emotion you feel, draw people you hate getting brutally ripped apart. It helps
