Expressive painting in colorful garden spirit

Taken the time in the garden and enjoying the various lives that exists there. I can feel the vibrant flow of the movements of the butterflies, and the colorful  joy of the flowers.  This all gives an impression and touches the soul.

I can take this with me, it is already a way of healing.  But there is more and so it gets out on the paper in creation of the art that heals further. Hopefully, it will inspire others to feel the spirit once again.

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
