Special Note on Why I Paint

There are various reasons people take up the arts. Some do so for exhibiting, selling, teaching, etc. Some do so merely for the soul purpose of hobby and relaxation. Many of my painting pals paint as a means of creating something special for friends and family as gifts........special keepsakes. Then there are those who might paint or venture into the art realm for therapeutic reasons. This is one of my primary reasons for drawing and painting. It is therapeutic in nature for me and even more so when I share the process with others. This to me is a very special avenue for bringing like minded people together. Helping and encouraging people to find that creative self that we are all born with and concentrating in something positive in today's mentally and emotionally challenging world. There's nothing like escaping or getting lost in the process of creating. It's like the world's problems and personal life challenges cease to exist..........at least for a little while.
