Megan’s original butterfly wing tusche wash painting artwork, Drained, symbolizes the emotional drain experienced through cold & wet wintery weather on the human phsyche witihin the fluid pigment application seemingly flowing out of the blue butterfly artwork.
I created this piece after experiencing several rainy days. This cold, dark weather wears on me. It depletes my energy levels, and it creates sleepiness as I feel myself seeping down long endless roads only to eventually trickle slowly into gutters. As I settle myself into pools, I realize I’m recollecting my mind, my thoughts, and my breath again.
I realize it’s ok to succumb to this feeling of Drained and to remember to take care of myself – not just for me, but for everyone in my life.
