Looking at the Dream

Looking at the Dream
'lil dreamer 4/11

As of late, I have been healing through art.  The hubs, the amazing and wonderful boy that he is, got me an enormous artist's easel for my birthday.  In addition, I was let loose in the art supply store.  This is my kind of heaven!  Art has replaced writing at least for a bit.  Hence the lack of recent posts.  For me, the art of creation is the ultimate healing and thus, I have been less and less strained lately.  

I have had this image in my head for a long time as it is exactly how I feel--as though I am eagerly looking upon every pregnant woman wishing that were my place in this world.  The pregnant woman could be any of the countless pregnant friends, co-workers, or family members that regularly cross my path.  But, it could just as easily be me.  

So here is my latest art therapy--(though the lighting is not so good) here is a soft pastel rendition of my not so pregnant self looking in on, eagerly anticipating, and dreaming of my someday pregnant self.  Sharing my art is not something I normally do as I am incredibly self-critical, but I felt that this piece just might speak to some others.  So, there it is, from one dreamer to another.
