Recently I posted about how art heals on my Facebook page and I was happily surprised about how many agree with me! We are so fortunate to have found a way to not only express ourselves, but also a way to fill our lives with joy.
For myself, when I get my hands dirty let the world go and play with art I feel so much happier. Such joy in the act of just creating something!! Whether it’s for myself or for others…just that ahhhhh feeling comes over me. Now I wonder and ask, is it like this for you?

Besides it’s healing effect, I also enjoy trying different forms of art! On a recent trip to the library I came across the Pam Carriker book, Mixed Media Portraits. I have done a few sketches from it in an altered book. It’s such a fun and different approach for more lifelike faces.
Try something new today, and feel that soothing healing feeling for yourself!
