Here Comes a Thought

In this digital painting inspired by the song "Here Comes a Thought" from the Steven Universe soundtrack, Kayla explores the experience of learning how to show yourself grace when your thoughts become overwhelming.

Inspired by the phrase "seeing stars", Kayla overlaps the figure and background with stars in addition to a motion blur effect on the stars and figure to in emphasize the feeling of disorientation that occurs when negative thoughts begin to overwhelm her. She makes sure to leave the face of the figure mostly clear to highlight the importance of taking the time to remind yourself to be patient and kind to yourself when you feel as if negative thoughts are beginning to consume you.
