Art Therapy

Do you like drawing or painting? maybe you have never tried. Putting pen/paint to paper can be very therapeutic. No special paper or paint is needed- you could doodle on a scrap of paper, or try a colouring book. becoming engrossed in what you are doing can be very relaxing. Concentrating on something totally different can switch off a ‘busy brain’ and give you time out of your day to just be with yourself. here is a painting I did recently on an off-cut of wood from the garage, It took about an hour to do, and I thoroughly enjoyed examining the shape off different pictures of mushrooms.You can out your own interpretation on what you see- your painting does not have to be an accurate representation, but use your imagination!

Here are some more mushrooms carved out of wood I took a liking to at a horse show.
