A mixed-media piece, another self-portrait.

Swirling, spinning, rapid thoughts of mine…I have so many things going through my mind. It is hard to pick just one thing sometimes…my mind a cluttered mess…but my heart is well organized…

Media Used: collage, photomontage, coffee, acrylic, ink, pastels on w/p 18 × 24

    Very nice composition, Christina. Love the depth you’ve hidden in this one. xox

  • Thank you Jenifer. Your comment means alot to me. If you don’t already know, I suffer from several types of anxiety disorders, a panic disorder, and mild bipolar. Even though lately it has been easier for me to concentrate and remember things, I still have bad days. I discovered those bad days reflects in my chaotic pieces. This piece in particular I had a day where I had several panic attacks. I find solace and comfort in my art, it often disturbs me how out of control it seems. But those chaotic pieces help me remember how I was feeling….I’m sorry if that does not make sense, lol. But this piece is just another result of my anxiety…I just wanted you to have a deeper understanding of my artwork. :-) xoxo

    Oh it makes perfect sense. My husband suffers from a lot of these same things. Living with it on a regular basis, I often lose track of who’s dealing with what and which evils are the root. And thanks for sharing such a depth with me. It does add an extra dimension to the art. I’m glad you find such a beautiful way to express your struggles and in doing so, minister to so many others. xox

  • Oh thank you Jenifer for your beautiful comment….it is very encouraging and means alot to me…. :)
