Info: Made 2017. "Cutting Through" is one of ten paintings in my series "Exploring Anxiety."  My creativity/ideas are one of the most energizing things in my life. However, my brain keeps producing thoughts and ideas about things that aren't so energizing (what's the best route to the store, what's the best time to call that person, you should brainstorm for that paper due in two weeks, etc). I have to actively cut through these thoughts to return to the peace and calm of the present. It isn't easy. That's why I made a painting about it.
