Mixed mediaUnclutter the mind, 202050x70cm

After the loss of my husband I was encouraged to join an art class which was completely out with my comfort zone. I reluctantly attended several classes and to my amazement found how liberating it was, as my mind was in turmoil, hence this brings me to the title of my work. On first inspection it looks like I have applied the colours randomly to the canvas, but looking closer I can see all the grief and clutter of my emotions from that time. Through doing this painting and several others I found this to be uplifting and felt the release of an emotional valve giving me a clearer and more positive outlook to my future. On a more positive note I have found that coming to my art classes and continuing at home has really helped me to manage my grief and hopefully have the potential to produce more of my artwork.
