For me, creating art is a necessity. It’s the best tool I’ve found to keep my brain roughly normal.
Creating art helps me quiet my mind, helps my thoughts stand still and stops the ADHD-train from going completely off the rails. More specifically, it allows me to focus on one thought at a time.
Almost. When I paint the thought is only alone for a few seconds. It’s progress, and practice makes better, closer to perfect. One day I might be able to put the ADHD-train to a standstill for whole minutes, who knows.
I have a history as a business owner, working with graphic design, and as a professional photographer. Personally I struggle with a few mental issues; ADHD, stress, anxiety, etc. And in addition to all of that I had a minor stroke a few years ago that is still affecting me today. My family and my painting are the key things that keep me from going more insane than I would consider normal.
