June 20th: Thursday Art Date With Rain - Lonely

Photo Shoot from 2018 (That's me looking lonely!)

Hello Everyone!

June 20th's theme for our art date is: Lonely.
(please visit Rain's Garden on Thursday June 20th to post your link!)

Why did I choose the emotion "lonely"? Well, not because I am, at least not these days! :) Not because I'm sad or feel pessimism...but because I think it's a FANTASTIC theme for art/photography/poetry and creativity.

I think for the most part, people love to create "happy" art, "pretty" art, do you know what I mean?  I like to create spooky, scary and horror-filled pieces. I like to create sadness and despair and lonely pieces. 

I'm good at humour and sarcasm, I think I show that in my Looney Tunes cartoons. But "happy" art was a BIG reach for me.

So this week for whomever is challenged by this...I challenge you to create LONELY. Reach deep, let your emotions come out in your creation! It will be so rewarding, cathartic and beautiful!
