12 x 16 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello

I was driving yesterday and  noticed I was feeling kind of sad. It was a familiar feeling I've been having the past few weeks and then it dawned on me that I  seem to feel that way when I'm driving. I put 2 + 2 together and realized, I'm responding to driving in the rain. It's been so grey and gloomy here in Atlanta for weeks that I hadn't realized how much it was affecting my mood.  ( I know I can't complain compared to those of you living in areas where you are dealing with snow and blizzards.)

I decided that I will "create my own sunshine". In class we closed all the blinds so we wouldn't see the rain and clouds outside and pretended it was sunny. Doing this painting reminded me of sunny, warm days in Italy.

So it you've got the winter blues, create your own escape to a sunnier place and time. Art can help take you there.
