Art brings me peace. I love to create art daily. Doing so gives me an opportunity to rest my mind and truly relax. Sometimes I sit down and I have no idea what I’m going to create. Other times, it’s an immediate flow of ideas. Regardless, the process itself is always therapeutic. This has been true my entire life. This weekend I found myself deeply immersed in this simmering volcano piece. Before I knew it, the hours had grown late. The peace and quiet was a welcome escape from the daily grind of parenting my kids and one I rarely see anymore. I’m sure parents can relate. Between homeschool, breaking up sibling battles, making meals, doing laundry, changing diapers, and all the things that pile up each day, finding that peace and quiet is so very important. What creative outlet do you embrace for your own quality of life?
