Wisdom on Wednesday: Learn to Paint

Learning to paint has so many benefits.  It keeps your brain active, and strong.  It can help you express yourself in many ways.  Check out painting abstract with music.  It helps with dexterity and fine motor skills. It can help  you relax, and meditate or be mindful.   You don’t have to be great, just do it because you love it.  If you get really good you can start to sell your artwork and make a little extra money.  I have been painting for probably 6 years.  I was horrible at first, and I certainly wouldn’t say I am super yet.  I took a couple years off, and am now feeling the inspiration again.  I do not particularly like to paint on canvas, or paper.  I love to paint on things, like wood- such as walls, doors, and fences.  My mailbox is in need of a new design.  Glass is super fun to paint on as well.  I painted Christmas ornaments one year, that was a lot of fun.  The images below are my back to painting project.  That is the inside of my front door.  When it gets cooler I may do the outside.  It is nowhere near done, and most large projects take me weeks to finish.

Do you love to paint?  Do you have a goal of learning to paint to help improve health conditions such as stress or anxiety, or just meet a goal?  Use the contact form below to message me for a free meet and greet.  If you do paint feel free to share one of your projects in the comments.

Tomorrow I will be doing the next post on Anemia and CKD.  Then, on Friday I will be doing a series on salads for Foodie Friday.  It is too hot to cook.
