aaaaaaarrrgghh!

as I was driving home from work today.... this is how I felt...


AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!

Above is a painting by Edvard Munch titled 'The Scream'....

Perfect representation of how I felt...

I was disappointed, angry, upset, hurt..... some things I am hoping for haven't been happening and some other things I am hoping won't happen are happening.....

At first I thought of going for retail therapy..... bit hard when I have limited funds.... so no point going to a shopping centre..

Then I thought of going to have a nice big piece of chocolate cake at Bakerzin, Marmalade of Alexis.... But for some reason, I just don't feel like eating...

I don't drink, smoke or do drugs so the only thing left I could do is go home and do something a lot less self destructive....

I did a painting...

And this is the result of 2 hours of just sitting in front of an empty canvas....



I told myself "do WHATEVER you want... no rules.. no restrictions.... no need to justify to anybody why..."

Something I don't understand about myself though is everytime I do a painting when I am upset, the end result of the painting doesn't look like it's been done by someone who is upset...

actually, when I look at it now, I feel quite free.... the little abstract figures look like they are floating away....

I don't have a title for it...

You got any ideas?

wow, i wish i could convert stress and negativity into a beautiful painting!!

to my it looks like little bubble-flowers arising, "bursting" the stress away! how about "relief" or "bubbles of release" as the title?
