From years past, and new.

Posted Image
- Being forced to be someone I was not. Ex.

Posted Image
- Running from jealous ex. And his chamber of torture aka my old home.

Posted Image
- Streaking in the shadows with my Superman, who turned out to be no more than lying scum.

Posted Image
- Walking and not finding real people. Just neutral, fake, unemotional politically correct brainwashed people.

Posted Image
- Having my creativity squashed by my ex.

Posted Image
- The Attack.

Gee,

thanks for sharing your drawings with us, there is a great deal of symbolism in them but I am not skilled in symbolic interpretation.

I do love symbolism, perhaps because I fear someone will understand me some day and say I am crazy.

The only one that isn't symbolic is the last one. That is actually drawn from how I remember the attack. I blacked out his face in case my friends (his friends and relatives) would see it.


Thank you for your comments Ed! Hugs

Control,

I think you are excentric not crazy also a friendly and loveable person. I think your rich symbolism indicates a very creative mind.

Hi Stella,

I just wanted to say that I'd looked over these drawings you shared and I really admired your ability to express so much through your art. I wish I could do that. It feels like it would be such a release, to be able to let your feelings and impressions out that way. I'm better at writing than I am at drawing so I tend to turn to my diary. But in some ways visual art seems more powerful. I wish I had your artistic ability. Your drawings almost seem to speak out loud.

Guys,

I think as a general rule it is better to express our feelings in a controlled way than repress them, art is a good media for releasing emotions same goes for music. What music do you like?

Have any more drawings you would like to share with your BTB friends?

hugs a million

Thank you both for your comments, I do appreciate it! A lot of people wonder why the pictures are so sad, they don't understand it's better I draw my sadness out than being sad all the time.

I personally love Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, but I listen to a lot of different styles of music. Nirvana, for example.


I will share more drawings when I draw them up. I feel very good right now. So I haven't needed to, luckily!

Thank you both, and you are right Winter. I remember the time as sad though. I could not enjoy the love I got because I was preoccupied with my misery and obsessed over my new found joy in life. That probably ended it.

I just got the idea that you are the one sitting facing the sun and someone else is trying to lead you away but you are saying 'no i want to stay and watch the sunset ta'

Maybe, maybe... I was very divided when I left my ex. I needed to, but I felt like leaving a small child alone.
