Confronted with your mortality!

Updated: May 7, 2022

Maybe not the best subject to talk about on my first blog post, but lets get it out of the way so we can carry on with our lives.

I have learned that you should stick to a style and subject, but I have thrown that teaching to the Wild dogs! For so many years I have struggled to get my own fear in check, what will people think? Will I be successful? Am I good enough? Is what I'm doing the right thing? Will I be accepted for who I am? Will I survive and be able to provide for myself and the people in my life? And with this fear, the biggest of all, the fact that we will all die at some stage...

Sometimes I have a grip over my fears, and then sometimes I can't get out of bed! I think this is normal...

I painted this painting just to express my sometimes overwhelming fear of my own mortality, that can overshadow my life. When I'm in that mind space I will think to myself that I'm wasting my life by letting it overwhelm me, but I found to just stay with the fear and feel it, makes it go away quicker. It did help to paint my feelings...#Artist #ArtistinRandburg #artinJoburg #SouthAfricanartist #WildlifeArtist
