Whimsical Ideas

When we paint, we stay connected with the world we live in. We  convey  what  we  see,

remember or project and that includes our  thoughts,  our  memory,  our  feelings,  our

emotions, what is happening all around us, what affects us or what stays inside of  us

onto that canvas. Even Surrealism and Fantasy art is shaped by our memory  and  our

thoughts. Therefore painting does not disconnect us from our world and it cannot help

the artist to relax. You have to compose well, choose your  colors  well,  use  the  right

textures etc. So much for the whimsical ideas that painting can help you relax.
