Here's a very personal post from my truly talented UK artist/visionary/dedicated mum/loving and caring activist friend for the awareness of people going through depression as well as mental illness @rachisaur
I've been collecting art pieces from all types of artists from all walks of life, but no work of art has touched me the most as this well detailed drawing has....especially it's background meaning behind it.
Years ago I lost a friend to depression, I can still remember that day at Highland Hospital in Oakland,California ....watching the life of my friend slowly slip away and hoping it was me instead. Tears rolling down my face and asking GOD why him not me.
For years I would reflect back what last words I could have used, why didn't we take his words seriously, why him not me, wishing I had more time to spend, blaming GOD,feelings of guilt,depression, anger and the list would go on and on.
Please anyone who is actually reading this post through its end, if your feeling deep feelings of depression or mental illness....get help now! Every second counts and you are worth it !!!! I'm getting teary eyed and getting choked up writing this so I will end it by saying from the bottom of my heart....."Thank you very much @rachisaur for your heart and amazing portrait of actor/comedian ROBIN WILLIAMS " #artists #help #depression #mentalillness #rip #robinwilliams #touched #artistsoninstagram #suicide #rachisaur #uk #usa #friend #socialawareness #speaknoevil
