Fantastic Fun Friday

I hope that this finds you all happy, well, and ready for a great weekend! I do hope that your week went well also! Today, I am sharing two of my drawings with you. 

This is one of the videos that I used to get myself started:

Why art? Drawing? Although I do not draw often, when I do I feel a sense of disconnect and creativity all in one. I suppose that you could compare this disconnect and peace to meditation because it helps you feel fully spirited from having a moment to simply rest. This activity is low maintenance and pleasurable, which allows you to focus your energy on enjoying what you create. Drawing is not for everybody. But for some of you out there that could find pleasure in it, but don’t make the time, let this post be your reassurance that it does help if you need something to help you feel happier. You never know… you might be good at it. Start with Youtube videos because there are so many.  

Here are some quotes about art that I found inspiring:

“Creativity is contagious, pass it on.”

-Albert Einstein

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”

– Thomas Merton

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

-Pablo Picasso

Rachael McIntyre has Multiple Sclerosis. She says that drawing, or other forms of art, help you with your mental well-being while living with MS. I have to agree, perhaps this is why I find myself drawing, crocheting and crafting more now than ever before. I hope that you have hobbies that you enjoy and make time for them, even if it is just once in a while, so that you can clear your head and enjoy creating something. In this link you can learn more about her: https://www.mssociety.org.uk/care-and-support/online-community/community-blog/ms-and-creativity-finding-my-motivation

What are your hobbies? Do you find it hard to give yourself time to do them? 

Thank you for stopping by and reading this post. I look forward to reading your thoughts.

    Beautiful drawings dear 🙂 For me also drawings and paintings are kind of meditation, we are fully dissolved in its creation. Singing near plants and watching clouds, birds, butterflies, small insects and animals are too my hobby and in these also I feel dissolving in the act and feels an inner bliss..hope you too may try any of these and see how it works for you too 🙂 may u have a beautiful weekend 🙂
