Sixty Five Roses 

Ink and acrylic on paper, social media posts @marygraceart, 2015

As a two-month long project to raise awareness and funds for people living with cystic fibrosis. I created one artwork a day for sixty-five days. Each work took me approximately five hours to complete. Which included gathering high scans of each work, uploading them to the internet, and posting them to social media. All proceeds were donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Writing sixty-five roses over and over again was a way for me to calm my anxiety and manage my panic attacks after graduating from undergrad. I still did not know the existence of therapy, prozac, meditation, and other healthier forms of anxiety and depression management.
