I let my oldest daughter name this one. The psychology of art is fascinating to me. I recently read an article in Psychology Today about the role neurotransmitters play in the creative process. There’s an overlap in characteristics of highly functional creative people and schizophrenia. However, healthy creatives have some internal mechanism that keeps them away from mental illness, while still allowing safe access to the benefits of the creative neural pathways. While working this piece, I definitely had access to the flow. And as my oldest daughter looked at it - she asked me, “What’s the title?” I said I wasn’t sure - though neurochemistry was definitely on the tip of my tongue. She said “I think you should call it ‘What I See Inside My Brain.’” The shock of her shared experience with me cemented the name. I love the connectivity of subjective, yet shared experience.
