Passion Breaking Free - New Painting

in painting •  7 months ago

Life hasn't been the easiest thing lately, and I find myself painting to clear my mind. Painting is something that has always calmed me and allowed me to get back to center. 

The other night, there were a lot of things pressing down on me and the easiest thing for me to do would be to quit... but I'm not built like that.

Instead I decided to sit down and put on some good music and paint for a while. This is what I came up with.

The title is called "Passion Breaking Free".

I used acrylic paints on a canvass from Michael's. I created this piece over a couple of hours and I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I have no illusion of being a great painter, but I was able to convey my message with this piece. 

The best thing is, I was able to settle my troubled mind and get focused again. Painting is therapeutic to me.

What do you think? Do you like my painting? Let me know in the comments below.

That's a very nice piece of art @walkingkeys, I'd buy that :)

Finding a way to stress down is essential, even if you don't usually require it, it's good to have at least one good way that you know works.

Hope things work out good for you!


Thank you very much @sc-steemit. I really appreciate it. I'm good, but it helps to have something to take your mind off things that doesn't include drugs and alcohol. Those are fun, but not for clearing your mind.

Thanks for the support, homie. I really appreciate it.

isn't life a pain huh. I as well as you am extremely down right now. I'm glad you have found a way to distract your self. I'm currently doing that in the wrong way. I should try painting see what I come with. I like the art though. To me it looks like something is trapped but it's close to escaping.


I hope things get better for you too, my man. I appreciate the support and kind words. Keep your head up. you are exactly right about the escaping. Nailed it.

Congratulations @walkingkeys! You have received a vote as a way to thank you for supporting my program.


Happy to do it. Thank you
