Show What Results You made when releasing stress/frustration through art work!

This is what my results after all the stress (a.k.a piled up paper works and staring at computers for 9hrs 5days/week)

I ended up doodling some crazy lines....and putting random colors that doesnt make any sense LOL

This is one I did maybe 3 days ago when I was having an absolute horrible day, I literally engrossed myself into it, took me a few hours, but Feel so proud of it. Its wild, I cant just sit and draw I need to ither have research on subject, or need to be really distraught.

hi girls

love your artwork today - it is very colourful; did you use pencils or markers or what?

i haven't been here for a while but i am here now! i agree with you about nature and stress. in fact i feel like going outside and sketching some nature today maybe. i haven't been outside for a long long time - you wouldn't believe me if i told you. you see i have balance problems and i fall over a lot..oh it gets worse...we won't go there.

anyway, i want to sketch something REAL.

LOVE TO READ YOUR OPINIONS,oops caps lock still on!

you get that..same as logging off the site -n i always forget for DAYS!


I got back into drawing after a stroke just before I turned 80, and could not do anything else but sit in a chair for some weeks - it 'released' me and allowed me to once again express myself after a break. I tried colouring squares at first but felt the need to create something more real so slowly this landscape emerged over a period of a month.  Before my stroke I was studying but found I could not continue after hospital confinement, and art really helped me and gave me confidence once again,
