Harvest time is one of the busiest times for our little farm! The garden is brimming with beautiful fruits and veggies that are ready to be harvested, processed and stored for seasons to come. It is when I am most busy that I need to take a little down time for ME. On Saturday, I did just that! One of the most relaxing and therapeutic hobbies I enjoy is painting. Painting is very much an emotional experience for me. Time stands still. Being the all or nothing person that I am, once the palette knife touches the canvas, I don’t stop painting until the piece is finished. I enjoy taking photos of the painting process. It is fascinating to look back and see how it all came to be.
The room above our garage is one of my favorite spaces we have created. Let’s call it, Workout Room meets Art Studio!
I spent about 4 1/2 hours creating on Saturday and it was a magical time for me. There were no interruptions, no chores and no worries! It was the perfect time for a date with myself, some acrylics and a bit of creative magic!
I enjoyed the final painting, but loved the amazing calmness I felt when finished even more than the actual piece. Tending to my soul sets the tone for my entire day and a beautiful day it was…
