Original Oil Painting on burlap canvas
“There simply is no pill that can replace human connection. There is no pharmacy that can fill the need for compassionate interaction with others. There is no panacea. The answer to human suffering is both within us and between us” – Dr. Joanne Cacciatore


I have been reading poetry on Pinterest and I found this great poem I can so much relate to! Including a great comparison to Origami… It inspired me so I am sharing it here )))

She folded her life like origami,
Made what was large into something so small,
Bending and creasing her edges,
Until she filled almost no room at all,
She’d learnt to always say sorry,
That she was a burden for taking up space,
And so into herself she was folded,
Locked in her own suffocating embrace,
The world tore at all of her edges,
Once sharp corners has started to fray,
Now so tiny that nobody noticed,
As she slowly became to decay,
Reduced to just ashes of moments,
The wind swept her up off the floor,
And her pieces were scattered in places
She’d not dared to inhabit before,
As her eyes took in all of the beauty,
Of a world that she lived life deprived,
She learnt there’s no need to say sorry,
Taking up space simply means you’re alive…


Today i discover a new cool app for Mac users that love to paint but don’t  necessary have such skills. I am a regular mac user that sometimes get bored with usual photo effects and like to explore my options in app store.

Apps name is: Psykopaint

Basically you can take any image, drawing, photograph, and make it into a piece of art painting!

What i like about this app, is that you are actually involved in creating your art! It is not like the apps i tried before where you pick an image and then just push a button and it changes your image automatically, no. In this app you actually pick your brush (Monet brush strokes, Van Gogh brush strokes, etc.) and your style (impressionism, etc.) and than you “paint” your image piece by piece.

So here are some images i did:

The first image i took from Pinterest, created by Jennifer Healy, the second one was created by me in Psykopaint app.
