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 and prints 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, “ No darkness lasts forever, and even then, there are stars" (and bats!) - Ursula K. Le Gui .As the nights draw in and the days start to feel darker, it's good to remember that the light will come again and there are things to appreciate in each season. I love this spooky season but often the days can feel closed in, gloomy or miserable which can start to impact on mood quite substantially.
It had to be a bat for this October Mindful Moment! I love the yellow zing of their fur against the deep blue sky, bats are such interesting and wonderful creatures.
