David Griggs Practical guidance for psychology

Sometimes I feel like a broken record on repeat when writing or talking about a few of my paintings. However, the only way to communicate myself in text about any given artwork is that I suffer from a form of severe depression, a constant daily battle that has left me crippled more times than once. The good news is I have taken control of my mental health issues and changed a lot of things in my life. Daily exercise, meditation and a healthy diet are just a few. The biggest help for my wellbeing is painting. Using my mind, my body, movement and colour. I love prismatic colours, I love achromatic colours. Just painting, fluid, fun and a bit of humour.
