CAUTION!! Survivor Art!!

Please note:  If you are looking for art from the Webinar I gave for Survivorship, please read the tab above labeled “Webinar”.

These pieces reflect the healing art of a survivor of SRA. If you are a survivor, please be aware that some of these pieces may be triggering. Please make sure you are prepared with whatever you need in order to stay grounded or to get grounded should you be triggered. There is also a lot of spirituality reflected in many of these. It is part of whom I am in addition to being part of the territory of SRA.

I am trying to give you a bit of space here so that you won’t be immediately hit with an image. Scroll down with caution. I am also putting a trigger warning on some of the pieces…but really…that can be so different from person to person. Don’t count on there being one. This is really the trigger warning for all of them…whether they need it or not!

Thank you for taking good care of yourself!

Regarding notes in the posts: Some of these pieces have notes on their backsides. In that case…I will most likely include the notes here. Many don’t, though. In that case…I may put current thoughts with them, but most likely will not. Who knows? It goes moment by moment…just like the rest of life!

4030 — Safety 3 — 3 of 3 — April 25, 2011

This is the third in the series for the Expressive Arts Carnival. Each of these three pieces expresses something different about safety while also having a common theme. I am not sure that one expresses things any better than the other two, but this third one seems to be the most powerful to me in its message. It comes across bolder? Stronger? Not sure how to say it. I like how it expresses healing, as well as Yahweh’s strength!

Yahweh keeps me safe. He encompasses all the evil and dark things around me. My heart is safe within Him. All the pieces of my heart are brought together by His healing (symbolized by purple). He is my Protector and my Healer.

4020 — Safety 2 — 2 of 3 — April 25, 2011

This is the second one I did for the Expressive Arts Carnival. I think it is pretty self-explanatory. My heart is safe in the center. I have nothing to fear from Yahweh, Truth, Growth, True Friends and Spiritual Family. It is not that the people involved are perfect, but my knowing Yahweh helps me to deal with the foibles of others. With everything being inside Yahweh…I am safe.

4010 — Safety 1 — 1 of 3 — April 21, 2011

I did this series for the Expressive Arts Carnival. The activity is found here.

I started off with this one:

It took me quite a while to figure out what I was going to do. In this piece, everything inside the circle is safe with Yahweh being at the center. The black things in the boxes are not safe to me. However, they are boxed in to show that they ARE contained. I am no longer as vulnerable to them.

4000-1, 2, 2-1, 3, 4, 4-1 — A Six Word Autobiography — March 21, 2011

I did several of these…playing around with it using PSE8. They are shown in the order in which I did them. Unfortunately, they do not have borders. I may try to fix that another time. Perhaps, I will change the background color to something other than white. Or…maybe I will just let them float!

I would love to hear if anyone relates to this…or has a favorite format.

4000-1

4000-2
(I think I prefer this one over the next one, but it really is a toss-up. There is a two differences between them.)

4000-2-1

4000-3
(I think this one turned out really cool. I think it just might be my favorite.)

4000-4
(I like this one, but I think I like the boldness of the next one better.)

4000-4-1
(This one has some of the letters in bold. I think I prefer this one over the non-bold one. I think either of these last two would come in as second favorite for me.)

3090 — My Truth 2 — February 18, 2011

I did this and My Truth 1 for the Expressive Arts Carnival #8. My Truth 1 was done first. This was written for the Carnival: “I am not sure how to explain them. It is what came to mind as I thought about my life. I know there is significance to the colors, but, right now… it feels very private… like something I need to hold in my heart for a while.”

I do have the significance of both written down, but I am choosing to keep it private for now. It is very positive and affirming to me…like a message from my Creator about My Truth.
