Last week was horrific. I am an empath and have been reeling from Buffalo, Uvalde and now the Tulsa tragedies. I got stuck in a mire of emotions which really impacted my ability to create or do much. I did find being outside and pulling the foxtail weeds helped a bit and got a much needed chore out of the way.
Yesterday I felt like I could start painting and I finished a pair of white Converse Chucks that I washed with acrylic to a beautiful blue. I am really happy with how they came out.
I now have an old pair of Chucks given to me by the 8 year old daughter of a Farmers Market vendor friend to paint. I think bringing this pair back to life for her will be healing for me.
