Art and You!

You may have heard me talking about Art as a healing tool many times. And still I stand by that. You may not pay much attention but if you do you will realize Art is all around you. Nature paints a new picture everyday! People, movement, right now, right in front of you, the colors, the plants, ok you get the point. Art has been my go to medicine since I was a small child and I'm pretty sure it will see me out of here.
There are tools at your disposal that can open you up to a whole new world of Art. Like your phone. Honestly not a day goes by that I don't take pictures. Something always catches my eye, a bird, a tree, a meal... something. Sites that once you pass them up you may never see them again. And for that minute or three while you're gazing upon whatever it is... you have given your senses a breather, a break from whatever they were focused on previously. Seriously, try it. Bring color in. Maybe in small doses...don't freak yourself'll want more and more until you just can't stop yourself.  It will make you smile and even when creating, it's okay to come up with some funky stuff. That's what Art is all about. There is no such thing as perfect Art. Fine Art is a perception as I was told by a Gallery once. It's what you consider Fine Art. Perfect lines, circles and squares are ok for some, but if you really want to bring it in, go for it, be loose and spontaneous. If something doesn't work out in your mind, put it to the side and start on something else. Just the time you spend doing that will have given you a distraction from what ails you LOL. See!

 I found this Art outside my bedroom window, just sitting there in the sky!

And by the way, Art comes in all forms, Cooking, Dancing, Drawing, Dreaming, taking Pictures, you name it!
Have an Artful day!
