Give Your Stress Some Wings And Let It Fly Away.

Let me tell you a short story: once upon a time I was a pretty depressed person.  Let's face it, living on planet earth is not exactly peachy keen.  Didn't matter what I did, I felt like I was faced with constant unfortunate events and no way to deal with them. 

All the trials and tribulations of life were getting to me. I had enough, heartbreak, loss and sorrow to last me a hundred lifetimes or at least that's what it felt like.

My only salvation became art. I would drown my sorrows in drawing or painting, and low and behold, it helped me deal with the rough times.  

Actually, at some point I realized that doing this played a major role in my life, and what was actually occurring. It was the fact that all these negative thoughts and experiences carried with them negative energy or crappy vibes, and when I was creating art it would put me on the creative vibe, pull me out of low energy emotions, like sadness, grief, anger, fear, etc., and I would end up, less stressed, calmer, more peaceful, and happier.  It became my "happy pill."

Did you know that just 45 minutes of creative activity significantly reduces stress?*


So since my discovery, I wanted to share this with you and others.

And recently, when I discovered fluid art, it became a blast, and I knew others could do this even without having any artistic talents. 

And so my Fluid Art Painting for Beginners Course was born, and now you too can de-stress while creating masterpieces.  This is my way of giving all that stress some wings and letting it fly away.


I'll end with some great advice from Lisa Marder: "Even if you’ve never considered yourself an artist, now is the time to take up an artistic pursuit. It is never too late, and everyone can do it... You will be greatly rewarded emotionally, physically, and spiritually for your creative efforts. As Pablo Picasso once said, 'Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.' 


Caution: this type of painting is extremely fun and can be "addictive." ;). Click HERE for more info.
