Spring Jubilee

18” x 36” Mixed media on canvas

I can’t tell you how long I’ve been working on this painting, it’s been a long while. There are many layers, concepts, colors, mediums, and emotions buried behind the finished piece.

The beginning of 2022 has been rough. More sorrow and grief. That’s why I wanted to create something happy and cheerful. Creating art is the best therapy, for me. I suppress. I hold it all in, always have. I know it’s not healthy, but it’s all I know. I’m terrified of what would happen if I let it all out in a physical way, it wouldn’t be pretty.

But I think this painting is very pretty, and deep. The texture is hard to see in the photo, it really adds to the depth of the work, so much more than meets the eye.

I wish you a very happy Valentines Day, love your people, and your pets while you can! 😊❀️

  1. Tiffany, I am so sorry the beginning of 2022 has been rough. I feel you for keeping it all in, knowing it is not good. Thankfully, there are better days to come. Art is wonderful, you can if you want to disappear for a while. You can put every emotion into it. I am thinking about you and sending positive thoughts. I see the blue lines in this painting as the road of life, going in every direction between obstacles on the way. There is also rays of light there shining in yellow and red. Soon the sun will shine again.

  2. You know they talk about Art Therapy as a distinct and separate discipline, but ART is therapy in every way and always. Good work Tiffany. Art is the search for expression as is our search for our soul. All the best.

  3. The energy of spring comes through the screen as I view your painting, Tiffany. Your thoughts on art are profound and resonate. You reminded me of a quotes by Thomas Merton: β€œArt enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
