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, injury, and recovery. My fire paintings show good fires and the results of bad fires. Some illustrate fire safety. And many paintings follow the repairs of two houses. I saw hope as the houses were reconstructed. I hope this work will help trauma survivors (both physical and psychological traumas) have a way to talk about their traumas.
