i have really enjoyed exploring my new found hobby: painting! I had my second painting lesson today and I had a fantastic time! I am really learning a lot about colors and how they mix together. 

The best part about it is that while I’m lost in my artwork, I forget about everything! No anxiety, no stress and no obsessive thoughts! It is such a relief to find such a natural remedy to anxiety! Creativity heals! What an amazing concept! I can’t wait to learn more and find out what I can do!

  1. Love your use of colour – they really sing out! I totally agree with you. Anything that cuts through the rumination is really helpful in easing anxiety – although that should probably be “anything positive” as some distractions can end up being problems in themselves! Looking forward to see more of your beautiful work.

  2. I’m happy you found something you like to do! Healthy hobbies are a great way to get through anxiety. I’ve found that writing, reading, and working on puzzles are a great way to concentrate on that hobby instead of anxiety! Both of your paintings are really nice, especially the second one!

  3. YESS! Creativity is the best medicine! I was talking to a dear friend today and she asked me for some advice for a church grad banquet meal – the theme of the night is Paris! I immediately perked up – my culinary training is in French cuisine! I am happily making menu suggestions! I love your pictures – the colours are bright and well thought out. I look forward to more of your work!
