Praise: “the expression of approval or admiration for someone or something.”

I do not paint to obtain the approval or praise of others, and I certainly don’t do it for the money! 😂 I create art because I get this itch, an overwhelming need to get something out. I don’t control it, it cannot be denied. Images of creations are the first thing I think of when I wake, and the last thing floating in my mind before sleep.

Occasionally, I receive comments on my work of disapproval. I have never let those comments bother me, some people will never open their minds to accept abstract art for what it is, I feel sad for them.

Don’t get me wrong, I really appreciate getting likes, comments, and shares from my peers and the people who actually like abstract art, and I suppose I get some validation from that attention. But, deep down, I do it for me, to soothe my soul and calm my anxiety. It’s a release. It’s therapy.

Now that I got that off my shoulders, I do hope you enjoy my painting today, and if not, oh well! 😉

Live to create, create to live!



  1. Those white “snowballs” appear to be hovering over the picture plane, pushing everything else back and creating some great depth on this piece, Tiffany, really interesting – or maybe the medication is wearing off.

  2. I always enjoy your abstract artworks, Tiffany – case in point 😊 Very nicely done! As you’ve noted, I also sometimes drift into sleep at night with a creative design idea in mind – one never knows when inspiration may strike. Have a nice day, my friend!

  3. I always thought the term art therapy to be rather redundant as art is therapy, you are right, quite right Tiffany and this work you do is you and very valuable and pleasing to the eye. Lovely, quite lovely 😊
