The Meaning & Purpose of Gentle Painting:

There are many techniques for practicing mindfulness. What are yours?

I often go for hikes and sit on a bench or rock and paint the fascinating things I find right there!

The Benefits: Many studies have linked creative arts and nature-based therapy to stress reduction, positive mindset, and behavioural changes promising for both people and the planet. Patterns indicate that the feeling of comfort and ACCEPTANCE we experience in nature leads to insights about one’s life and situations. INSIGHTS lead to a Stage of PURIFICATION when attention deficits are restored and moods become positive. Purification leads to a RECHARGING of energy and an increased hopeful outlook. Recharging leads to HEALING Outcomes and positive life perspectives.

With others or when self-guided painting allows one to focus on the moment and provides an opportunity to enjoy the present. It will enable the everyday stresses to subside, and, in the end, there is something unique to look at or share with others. Sharing our Art with others provides for a sense of belonging and builds confidence.
