"Kidney in Flight," mixed media collage with wax, 8" x 10"
"Heal," mixed media collage with wax, 4" x 6"
Tonight I did some art therapy. Words have been difficult to piece together to form coherent thoughts, so tonight I expressed my concern, sadness, worry, and hope with collage images, paint, and wax. Three days ago I learned that my dad has kidney cancer. It seems that is all I can say for now. Those words were tough enough to write. Perhaps creating art will lead to more words, for I know that I will need words through all of this. Language, like art, is healing for me, and it is essential.
