A while back I mentioned that I identify myself as a Renaissance Soul. I’ve studied many (seemingly) unrelated things during my life, mainly because I love learning new things, but there are some common themes. Most of my favorite subjects have physical manifestations…gardening, interior design, fashion, painting…and share common elements of color and design.
The best part is that I love these subjects so much that I get in “the flow”, a total engagement of my mind that stills the worried voices, and exercises the part of my brain that sees the “big picture” and connectedness between humans and the natural world. The times in my life when I was distressed over a loss or worried about the future are the times that art meant the most to me.
I would love to help you learn more about this connection between art and mental well-being in my articles this year. Use the comment section below to tell me what you’re struggling with so I can get started.
What areas would you like for me to explore? Do you want articles or classes about the technical aspects of drawing and painting? Do you want some resources for kick starting your creativity? Do you want to know more about how to connect with other artists? Let me know what art questions you’d like answered, and I’ll do some research and provide some answers!
If you would like to experience being in “the flow” in person, please join me for a class in acrylic painting techniques beginning February 15th. Click here for more information about the class.
