For Creative Therapy catalyst 71: creativetherapy.wordpress.com/2009/07/19/catalyst-seventy.... You can read my write-up on it there.

I'll pair this up today with this song I heard (and mentioned at Facebook) yesterday: Simple Life by the Weepies.

No Man is an Island

This watercolor is my response to the catalyst for Creative Therapy #72.

Our art is often inextricably linked to where we are and to what is happening in our days. Something we may see in our heads can evolve much differently when we begin to bring it to the page or canvas or fabric. Wisps of many quotes and adages came to mind this week as I thought about and worked on this piece. It was not an easy week and at some points, I considered submitting this art unfinished.

In the end, the piece is finished. It is softer than I think I envisioned it. It is different than it was in my head. It is a response and a capturing of a moment in time.
