For The Love Of Paint
I am not an artist by any means, but there is something so relaxing, and freeing about painting. Picking up a paint brush and bringing life to a blank canvas is joyous. Someday, when I have extra room in my home, I will dedicate an entire room to art. It will be equipped with painting supplies, colored pencils, crayons, markers, butcher paper, work tables and benches, clay, sketching supplies, craft supplies like: yarn, ribbon, buttons, hot glue guns, scissors, rulers, tape, and more; basically the works. Idealistically the room would be a sun-room of sorts, with large windows throughout most of the space. Art is an incredible stress reliever for me, and it makes me feel more accomplished as well. I encourage everyone, if you haven't created a bit of art lately, to do so! Find a craft and start creating, you will be glad you did!
