‎180711/Snake. Digital artwork, drawn with the mouse inside of Windows MS Paint program.

Just yesterday, I was reading on the internet about the work of Matisse; and, how he loved patterns; this is partly why the above snake is so full of pattern.

My grand-parents were originally from India, where I heard they have loads of snakes; I think, this partly influences me towards drawing such subjects. The pattern effect is akin to the way I’ve seen Indian girls, sometimes, decorating their hands.

The snake also very deeply influences me because, frankly, I’m deadly afraid of it! So, part of the reason why I tend to draw snakes is in order to confront my fear/phobia; and, thus, be able to deal with it more effectively, I hope? Like I heard when people have phobias of insects/animals; that they just can’t even bear to go anywhere near a ‘real’ one; they are first taught to look at photographs to help start off the ‘de-conditioning’ process. However, some snakes really are dangerous; so, it’s a good thing to be afraid of them. The problem is when the fear gets out of proportion; and, you start seeing snakes everywhere; like when you’re walking alone in the park; and, your mind starts wondering if any hidden snake might be about; or, even when you go to sleep you dream nightmares all about snakes! That, I guess, is when it’s time to go and deal with that particular phobia; as the more you choose to go run away from it; then, the more and more it seems to increasingly haunt you; we need to learn to face our fears in order to be able to overcome them; and, get them to lessen down.
