This drawing, which I made by covering the paper in black chalk and then erasing out the knight horse (class assignment), was when I started to realize how therapeutic art was for me. At the time of the drawing, I was going through a rough period in which I didn't have control of the situation and was very scared. When I drew, I was so focused, I didn't think of anything else, and for a moment there, all my worries disappeared. However, I remember trying to draw the horse's eye over and over so it would look calm and serene, but it just kept coming out as scared as I was at the time. It made me think that there was a strong correlation between the outcome of the drawing and what was going on in my life. I had never before thought of art as being such a mirror to oneself and so revealing as well as the process being so healing!
