happiness with salt

I painted this last night and it felt so good. Everyting is always better when I paint. I’ve been sick and haven’t painted much.

I started with the color yellow and gradually added small amounts of red. Then I sprinkled some salt.

Sometimes it’s hard to shut off that negative voice in my head.

I started with yellow because it’s a color that’s bright and should only be used sparingly. It’s the color of friendship. And friendship, an act of kindness even in the smallest amount makes all the difference. The salt represents the unpredicatability and therefore uncomfortableness of the life.

Painting always helps.
