HOW DID I DEAL WITH THE DEATH OF A GORILLA?

LIQUID INKS POUR, SPREAD, DISSOLVE INTENSE FEELINGS ON PAPER!

Feelings have to go somewhere, preferably in a constructive way.  When they go internally, illnesses seem to sprout up.  I reacted negatively to the death of Harambe, the gorilla at the Chicago Zoo.  The video showed actually human characteristics how he touched the boy, for this beautiful animal had been raised by homo sapiens, not in the wild. Harambe was engaged in play with the child, and those in charge could have shot him with a tranquilizer, not a bullet.  

So, I got out my alcohol inks and Yupo paper, and let my feelings literally spread all over the paper.  In a creative, not destructive manner, I poured out my grief at the loss of a beautiful creature.  

I’ve had my students, children and grandchildren experience discharging their feelings on paper, all the while, maintaining civility, sensitivity and creativity.  At the end of this article are links (just click them on) to alcohol inks and Yupo paper, so you can enjoy the benefits of this fabulous medium- even a book, I’ve included,  or look on You Tube. 

For the love of civility and sensitivity-create!
