Healing power of creative Arts

Who would not be interested in the healing powers of creativity?  Creating art pieces is not a concept thing, sometimes yes. Some people might see it like that. More, and especially for me, creating of expressive works is the translation of the inner part that cannot speak and wants to express itself. Through the expression it is also a kind of healing, and by that a therapy for yourself. Quite strong, not always understood by others, but always touching.

Here you can find one expressive painting I did some time ago

Garden painting with expressive touch

What a beauty a garden is. How positive it can touches your soul and your emotions. There is so much beauty and inspiration coming from God’s creations that you watch humble how the various lives are growing and developing.
Is it not amazing how color can change your mood? While your inner part sometimes creates uneasiness, how wonderful those colors can make your other part more relaxed.
This truly touches my soul and leaves this colorful transformation to be seen by those who want to get inspired.
