Rollin' in the Deep!

Have you ever had the kind of 'stuff' going on in life that it just makes you feel like you've been picked up by a great wave, tossed around and then dumped in the shallows gasping for breath?
Sometimes it can leave us wondering if we are going to get through it. But if we hang on and keep breathing, then we usually do, albeit with some bumps and bruises or a bit of sand burn, lol!
Lately it's been like that and this week I just needed to get all that emotion onto a canvas. (If you're an artist you will know what I mean.)
It's funny how we artists can use our gift to help us process life and all the' curve balls' it sometimes sends us. It's the same for muso's and writers.
The enjoyment of putting some music on, throwing some paint around and creating intuitively can be quite therapeutic.
I am thankful for my gift of art which sometimes just helps me make sense of this weird and wonderful life.
