“Woman concentrating on writing”. Drawing on paper. . Strange though it may sound, in 2018 I found I had lost all sense of who I am, what I have done with my life, and what I can do with the time left to me. . With lots of therapy and the support of friends, I came to see that I have been given a talent for writing and drawing – and that it would be very ungrateful to undervalue those talents. . This drawing is of a woman on a residential writing retreat I ran a few months afterwards. . I was struck by her concentration, and the pleasure she took from something that she also plainly found difficult at times. I hope it might inspire you to use your talents. . I am offering 8” x 12” prints of this image, with 50% of profits to womanstrust during May (Mental Health Awareness Week). DM me if you are interested. . If you are feeling depressed, anxious, or at rock bottom - talk to somebody. It will be OK. . . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #anxiety #therapy #arttherapy #artforsale #sketch #sketching #drawing #ink #waxcrayon #artistsoninstagram #instaart #artistsofinstagram #writing #talent #gratitude</a></p> <p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;">A post shared by <a href="https://www.instagram.com/jpflintoff/?utm_source=ig_embed&amp;utm_campaign=loading" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px;" target="_blank"> John-Paul Flintoff</a> (jpflintoff) on
