Pain is a big part of my life, I so wish it wasn’t as I spend way too much time thinking about it, trying to avoid it and trying to find natural ways to relieve it. (chronic neck, shoulder and back pain – thanks to Arthritis).
In some ways pain is the reason I use bright colours and crazy designs. Art takes me into a space where I can switch off and lose myself for a while, until the nagging starts anyway.
I worry that one day the pain will become to great and I will lose my ability to paint and draw, to use the computer to explore new worlds and look at all the beautiful creations in nature and in others’ studios.
I hope that day never comes… I am off to my studio to work on my latest creation, a mosaic to name the property I share with some of my children and grandchildren. My daily escape….
