Diabetes Art Day is today, September 1st, 2010. It was put together just weeks ago by artist therapist and diabetes blogger Lee Ann Thill. It is a way to create some excitement in the Diabetes Community and also attract attention towards our cause. The more attention we get, the more help we’ll receive. I am happy to play a small part in this :)
I thought it was fitting that my artist sister and fellow type 1 diabetic, Ana Morales, showcase something on The Girl’s Guide today.
About this piece, Ana says “I made this piece on one of those days when I felt a little upset about having diabetes and like it was holding me back from doing what I want. Doing something I love (painting and drawing) based on something so personal and often hard to deal with helped me overcome those bad feelings. I wanted to express that we diabetics aren’t alone when we feel afraid and sad about our situation. During those times we have to remember to remain positive and work hard to stay in control.”
Well said, sistah! If you want to see more of her art you can visit her art website: More Art Please
