More WIPs…

Its been a long time since my last post. That seems to be the starting sentence in my blog posts of late. Perhaps I should make it a tag, too. 🙂

Despite the job hunting frazzle, here’s what I’ve manage to work on…

He still needs more details, like eyebrows and more modelling…

Coming up for air…

Hi again. I’m finally able to write here again. Life circumstances have been plenty to deal with in the last several months since my last post. Divorce, search for a job, recovering from depression, adjusting to new meds, trying to get to a place in myself where I could be on remission so I could start getting weened from meds. Whew! Just enumerating that was tiring.

Here’s what I’ve been working on of late.

I haven’t figured out how to upload video here so I’d be honored if you click the link and check it out. Here’s some photos…

Trudging along…

I’ve been busy getting my new life way out here in Sacramento, California set up. Its been a busy several weeks going to and from government agencies, filling out forms and securing an appointment with a new doctor, etc.

Before I left WV, this is what I started drawing…

Centering

It is still a work in progress because a lot of my art and personal  stuff  haven’t arrived yet.  A day without  doing art is a day wasted for me.  Some days are better than others.

Here’s some more I managed to draw in between all the logistic stuff…

Gestation

Pardon the blurriness of some of them.  I upload scans when I’ve managed to finish them.

If you notice the dates they are days, sometimes weeks apart.  What can I say?  There are days like swimming in molasses.  Everyday I get out of bed, get dressed and come out of my room is nothing short of a personal triumph for me when I’m in the dark phase of BPD (bipolar 2 depression).   This week is good because some of my applications have gone through.  Hence, energy to write a post tonight.

Hopefully, my stuff will arrive soon which means more art making.  Yay!  Reading the following books helped motivate me out of my rut…

  • Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist
  • Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat Pray Love, Committed

Thanks for all those who asked after me and dropped me a line or chatted with me on FB and email, plus the prayers.  I really appreciate your kindness and support.  It makes me feel less invisible and worthless.

Happiness!

Being away…

I’ve been struggling with depression for a long time now.  It started getting worse in March and culminated in a 15 days of hospitalization in a mental health facility.

I’m currently on therapy and slowly in the process of learning about managing the dark and light phases of bipolar depression.  I’m still struggling with the diagnosis but on hind sight it explains about the shifts in mood that I’ve experiencd through the years since my early twenties.  I’ve been trying to go back on unfinished projects but I can’t seem to accomplish that.  It seems like so much sorrow and other emotions are pouring out of me into my visual journals.

In the spirit of honesty that I took on when I decided to have this blog, I am sharing these pages from my visual journals.  I believe the images speak better truth than words do.  Welcome to my life at the moment…

To everyone at the Pavillion and the Greenbrier Valley Medical Center whose kindness and love help carry me through, I am forever indebted to you. My hearful thanks to all of you.

I shall publish the pages as I finish them.  I’ve had a rough go of it.  I would appreciate you prayers.

In honesty,
