Digital Watercolor: A Portrait of Depression

Some days the best way to fight depression is let it pass. But if you think this is only the beginning of a longer season of depression, then the best way to tackle it is self expression. I thank God that I have been experimenting with digital watercolor this year. It has given me a creative outlet that I have never had before. This is not even close to elegant like some of my other painting.

It is not supposed to be.

It is meant to be messy. It is meant to be simple. It is meant to be slightly haunting. I am not one to shy away from the fact that I have depression. Up till now it had been well managed. I had meaning, my life had purpose. For reasons I will not go into, I have lost that. I find myself out of work and with an uncertain path head. I feel like I am melting away.
