Trying to keep my mind off redundancy

The last few weeks have been very hard and very challenging as I come to terms with not having a job after Christmas (31st January to be exact). I find art really helps to keep my mind off my worries and gives me space and time to forget everything that's happening around me. It focuses my mind on creativity and allows me to forget all my worries for a while.

I've been working on a mixed media under painting inspired by an artist called Jodi Ohl on Willowing's Lifebook. It's about healing the inner critic which we all have. There's a lot more work to go yet but I wanted to record how it looked along the way.


  1. looks lovely dee and anything to keep your mind off work and stress has to be a good thing :) I am sure all will work out well for you though.

  2. I have been in your shoes, redundancy is so hard HUGS
