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, “I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.” — Amy March, from Little Women. After a year of therapy I am starting to feel more stable and able to advocate for my needs and set boundaries more confidently. I know there will always be storms but I'm finding my groove better with how to handle them and that feels great. This quote resonates so much this month!
I wanted to paint another water scene as they are so fun! I love seeing seals in the UK, they are so amazing to watch.
