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 inspiring this piece is "Self love is also embracing the dark parts of yourself" which is feel is very apt right night! I'm currently battling some very intense anxiety as I'm not very well and having lots of tests and things done. Just what I needed in the middle of a pandemic! However, I'm trying to learn to be kind and embrace myself and allow myself just to be.
This little duckling was photographed by the amazing and lovely @roxythezoologist who let me paint the image. I think its perfect for the quote as the duckling can see its own reflection in the murky liquid void.
