21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
The Lost Belonging

I started an art therapy course every Sunday and it's been such an incredible experience - we first go to an exhibition together, create our own response piece to the art we saw and then share our thoughts and work process with each other. On that day, we visited "Earthlab: Living Matters", by Katherine Sankey. Every week I am challenged to create a piece of work completely out of my comfort zone - with paper, paints/pencils and my hands. This has been such an eye opening experience for my own art and creative process - it is amazing what we can come up with in a safe environment that cherishes the act of creating freely and not the creation itself. This image came into my mind about how nature always finds a way to come back through everything. It is not perfect, but it is a raw feeling I tried to let my mind flown with, without the judgement of the result.
