Re: I don't have a creative outlet, how do I find one that fits me

Lately I have been getting the urge to paint paintings.

So two weeks ago I bought a painting kit for kids age 4 and older.

**Trigger alert**(below)

I am presently working on a painting of person who has a heroin addiction, siting alone outside on the cold ground, semi passed out, semi leaning up against a brick wall of a busy down-town coffee shop, with a needle still in arm.

I call it a “warm soft hug”, inspired by the words of a person addicted to heroin, who described to Dr. Mate, about how they feel when they use heroin.

"When people are suffering mentally, they want to feel better—they want to stop having bad emotions and start having good emotions." (-Temple Grandin)
