Creative Therapy: Be Unique

The prompt over at Creative Therapy this month is: Describe a family keepsake you have or hope to have.

I made this painting in response to that prompt:

I couldn't think of a physical thing that I really wanted and that stood head-and-shoulders above anything else. But I am very clear on an emotional gift from my family that I hope I carry with me every day and pass on to my future children: be unique.

In a way, I do carry it with me every day because my middle name (Fei-Fan) means unique in Chinese.

Being unique is about being authentic and true to yourself and it isn't always easy.

This painting is a good reminder to me to walk to the beat of my own drummer.

And my favorite part is that I painted it on top of the beginnings on an idea that just didn't work out!
