If that robin is anything to go by, your work isn't crap by any stretch. What, in an ideal world, would you like to happen with your work? To be sold? Exhibited? Or do you paint solely for your enjoyment?

Thank you

I think in an ideal world I would love to sell artwork and earn some of my own money. I was offered some gallery space a couple of years ago but I was in a particularly bad bout of depression and couldnít go through with it. My mental health is too poor for me to think about doing anything serious with it, I donít feel remotely good enough and my confidence is way too low. I still enjoy painting though, itís my therapy

^ I've heard of exhibits and things for people with mental health issues to show their artwork, pretty sure I went to one in a gallery once. Have you ever thought of getting in touch with them, or trying a supportive art course? Don't know if you have a local Mind, but I imagine they'd be able to point you in the right direction.

You're really talented It's a shame it gets stifled by the way you feel about yourself.

^^ It's a beautiful painting, Clem. Would make a lovely Xmas card

I was thinking about venturing out to the hospital but then I realised that it is absolutely throwing it down. Feck you, weather! Hopefully it'll ease off soon. Tea and biccies in the meantime.

Beautiful painting
This is too lovely to throw away, you could be selling these as I'm sure many people have said before.
You are so gifted being this talented at art Clementine, you should see the state of my drawing.
Not even primary level, possibly pre-school.

Theres someone at my local MIND who exhibits some of his paintings through an orgnisation that MIND helped him get in touch with.

I saw one of his paintings at the Littlehampton Arts Trail (lovely kinda cubist landscape) and then a few months later some of his art was being shown in an exibit in Paris (i think) through the same orginasation. He has managed to sell some either through the orgnisation or online. I know it's a scary thought but you never know!

I agree. It's beautiful and definitely marketable.

Well done, Clementine

Probably going to cancel my MH appointment for today even though it'd be my first in weeks and I could really do with offloading onto someone who I don't feel the need to protect from my worries or apologise to for sounding selfish. I should make the trip to the hospital though so I guess it has to be done. I need more hours in the day, dammit!

^^ Thank you, Clem. I'm doing my best.

^ Aww Muggins, your posts break my heart. The only evil thing here is the awful depression you're suffering through and I really hope that one day soon you can find the right treatment that help blow these terrible thoughts and feelings away from you and allow you to see your true worth. Sending you love, strength and big hugs

I shouldnít post here when Iím feeling like this, itís embarrassing. Thank god for the delete button.

I hope you do manage to go a long to your MH appointment today, Kooky, as it sounds like it might lift a little weight off your shoulders if you can offload to someone

No need for any embarrassment, I just hope you start to feel better soon. I got my MH appointment pushed back an hour so was able to visit my mum and indulge in some industrial whining too which I feel better for.

My broadband has just decided to pack in, for God knows what reason. I hope it'll sort itself out because I'm not in the mood for phoning them, though I should really find something constructive to do while YouTube isn't around to distract me.

As I'm a glutton for punishment though, I'll probably have gravitated back here in no time at all.
