Art and Mental Peace

Art by Andrew Lawson

 

Art has been the only aspect in my life that allows me to gain an outlet for the insanity which my mind becomes, I tried drugs, cigarettes, cooking in restaurants, extensive traveling, swimming, soccer, and video games, but truly when I found the time and inspiration to paint, was when I knew that there was more to life than being furious within myself. There was finally a way to set the beasts inside free for me to look at, and perhaps be able to analyze or merely gain some mental peace from for a moment.  They are always something I can look to, they show where I have come from, and where I need to go with life.
