The day I did this painting, I had just come from a very difficult therapy session. I was feeling very angry about my life and about where I was at in life because of the abuse I went through as a little girl. I didn’t really think about what I was going to paint. I knew I just wanted to spread paint on a board and get my feelings out. As I was putting the paint on my board, I remember feeling a release of some of the anger. Don’t get me wrong, this painting didn’t “cure” my anger, but it sure helped in the moment and it kept me from using my anger against myself through cutting or binging and purging.
