The Findings in the Frenzy - Faces and Fairies

Saira-Jayne Jones

It's like some days my head is so full with this thoughtnado that the only way to make a bit of room is to paint the thoughts away. Paint the pain away and regurgitate the chaos onto paper.

Sometimes in that chaos you can find a fragment of calm, something positive; it might be a glimmer of a thought but it was there.

When I began painting this piece I was extremely overwhelmed with anxiety, anxious and depressive thoughts and sub-thoughts about harming myself.

After painting I noticed the fairies in the top left of the picture and to me it looked like one was trying to hold onto the other and keep them from floating away....kind of what painting this picture had done for me; keeping me grounded and present.
