Both Sides



Today is Diabetes Art Day! Yay!


And here is my project:


I call it Both Sides.  Oil pastel on white construction paper, FTW!  Which means for the win, in case you were wondering...
Diabetes Art Day
Please go to the Diabetes Art Day site to see everyone else's artwork and participate yourself!  Share your creativity!

I strongly believe in the importance of getting your feelings out.  Diabetes causes A LOT of messy feelings, and creating artwork is a great way to let some of those feelings out.

And many thanks to the amazing Lee Ann Thill for working so hard and putting this day together!

  6. I love this, and I want to learn how to do it! And maybe I want to go to the art store and get crafty wit' it some more. Seriously though, the contrast is awesome, and you really captured the flip sides of life with diabetes, regardless of type. Great job!
