One Day At A Time
Painting by Jessica Gray Schipp

Al-anon One day at a time. This was my bottom. My boyfriend left me, my Kickstarter failed, my sister relapsed and disappeared. I’d lost everything. I’d tried everything except Al-anon (a 12-step program for the friends and family of alcoholics): therapy, workshops, self-help books, journaling, painting but I was lost and surrounded in darkness. Al-Anon saved me, it became a light I could follow slowly while I crawled out of the rubble. This was the second meeting I went to. The painting/collage shows my feet- turned in, shy, surrendering, a tissue box, and The Unity Prayer. 9×12″ paper, acrylic paint, photocopy, paint pens, nail polish, Sharpie, Mod Podge on canvas board Painting Acrylic + Mixed Media 2018
