Good morning art world. Today I am writing about art for therapy. Are you feeling depressed, having money troubles, marital problems, sick children loved ones etc? You get the picture, daily life just seems to get in the way and we feel like there is no way out of it. I am no different to anyone else but since I found out how to paint, I can escape for a little while, or a long while, turn off the world and lose myself in creating a "masterpiece" . The aim is to create a "masterpiece" but I haven't as yet, this drives me on and convinces me to keep at it and strive to be a more accomplished artist. I finish painting for the day, clean up and then look at the clock, goodness the day has past and I haven't thought about my problems even once. Somehow they don't seem so significant now, hence my "art for therapy" has commenced and I am hooked. Next time you are shopping, go the to the art shop, buy a small canvas, some brushes and a couple of tubes of paint and begin to play, it won't solve your problems, but it will send you to a better place and your problems will melt away, if only for a little while.
Until next time, Lyn

This is my first blog for my new website. I would love to interact with people from all over the world who have an interest in art e.g.collectors, people wanting a commission, helpful comments on my work and anyone who is just browsing. I believe we are all connected by a love of art regardless of our colour, nationality etc. because art unites us all in such a visual way. ART IS MY LiFE...I'm not happy unless I have a paintbrush in hand, messy fingers, an apron on that just about stands up in the corner by itself, because it is covered by so much paint, music playing and a canvas on the easel. I apologise to my family for saying this, but they know me so well, and know that they really come first. Please feel free to connect with me and we will take a journey in art together. Until next time, Lyn
