Art is my therapy. Whether it's a good day or a challenging day, I can sit at my easel and the waters stop churning. The seas calm. It's only in the last few years that I've come to appreciate how much art is therapy for much of the humans on this planet. (And I thought I was special!)
Not a week goes by anymore that I don't have a conversation or online exchange with someone about how an image or a piece of art really touched someone in a profound way.
When I feel the beat of the ocean in my heart, smell the salt in the air, hear the crashing waves, I experience a similar bliss.
