Catharsis – Digital Painting

Yesterday I was in a bad mood because of the lack of understanding coming from people who I generally rely on to be there for me. All I really wanted to do was sleep. But I decided to paint instead. I’m always surprised at the cathartic effect it has on me. Painting is seriously better than any drug.

This is one of those paintings that I do sometimes just for the feeling of painting. Perhaps that concept only makes sense if you’re an artist. It’s sort of like a flow state, but also there is no purpose behind it except the flow. The flow state is like meditation and is very pleasant to experience.

Painted in Photoshop CS5 with a Wacom Intuos tablet. This is available as prints and on a variety of products.
