My Mindful Moment series are 12 pieces that will directly fund my own therapy this year.
I realised I really enjoy fundraising for causes that inspire me but I often neglect myself. In 2020 I started therapy again which has been incredibly helpful, however, in order to access what I need it is a paid service and I need to cover the costs. Therefore this year I will be releasing a painting on the last day of each month that I've painted mindfully that will directly fund my own therapy and hopefully I can raise awareness of mental health issues, reduce the stigma and create some good conversations and support to others.
The quote for this piece is, "If it happens, we'll see". It's a quote that helps me worrying about the 'what ifs' of the future as if something happens then we'll see what we can do about it. Until then we focus on today and what we can do in our current situation with what we know as facts.As someone who has struggled with severe anxiety I often worried about the future and the worst things that might happen. It feels overwhelming and all consuming at times, but noticing my 'what ifs' and repeating this phrase helps. Try to stay grounded in the reality of now.
I feel like these two hares are running from a storm and one might be communicating to the other not to worry, thar if they get caught, then they'll make a new plan together.
The painting is A5 sized, painted with vegan acrylic and watercolour paints on to sustainable bamboo paper and framed in a black made to measure frame (currently a mocked up photo!). It will be sent next day delivery via DPD unless collection can be arranged.
