As soon as I pick up a brush or palette knife and start adding colour to a canvas I enter another world. I find painting is very much like meditating and I become completely immersed in the art I am creating whether it is landscape or abstract.
The benefits of art to a persons well being are widely documented, and include reducing stress and quietening the mind. As I paint all the chatter in my head seams to stop.
" Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life" Pablo Picasso
I truly believe that anyone can paint or sketch and gain huge benefits in doing so. Your skill level or what you paint doesn't matter just give it a go, you may be pleasantly surprised by the results.
Please contact me if you have any questions regarding getting lost in the paint !
