Art for Months' Topics
Each Topic includes illustrations and writings:
WIRED: Telephone poles are like people--wired differently, yet connected.
ADHD CHALLENGES: The letters of the month's name illustrate aspects of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
CHAIRS: Chairs reflect "choices." We can choose where, when, and with whom we sit.
STEPS: This theme considers the steps we take in life. The Twelve Steps of recovery helped inspire these illustrations and words.
LAUNDRY: There are many insights in the common chore of laundry.
TRASH: Getting rid of stuff--deserves respect. It has much to teach us.
BOUNDARIES: Personal boundaries are reflected in physical boundaries.
SIDEWALKS: Sidewalk construction shows the value of a process including cooperation and inconveniences.
THE KITCHEN SINK: The kitchen sink can be a challenge, but it has life lessons.
ADHD CHALLENGES, TOO:
I found more aspects of ADHD to illustrate.

Painting multiple pictures regarding fire, I found a powerful metaphor reflecting life, safety, damage, and recovery. My fire paintings show enjoyable fire and toy fire trucks; fire safety equipment; several houses damaged by fire, and two houses in stages of repair. I saw hope out of despair as the houses were reconstructed. I hope this work will help trauma survivors have a way to talk about their traumas.
