Would You Like Peace of Mind?

 

Would you like Peace of Mind?

Who wouldn’t want to feel like they have a handle on their life?
There are ways to cultivate peace of mind.
ACTION #1  ~  SLOW DOWN
Drive the speed limit.
It’s not about getting there fast.
Its about being where ever you are.

 

Try drawing & painting, its much slower than taking a photo with your phone! It’s certainly a lot more fun!

Peace of mind is a way of life. Here are a few things that make a big difference.

  • Stay present.
  • Spend time in nature.
  • Be creative.
  • Be thankful for what you have.
  • Be a beginner.

I’m teaching a plein air sketchbook class where we travel everywhere and ask the same questions and deal with all the same situations as if we were painting. One of the advantages of sketching is we have a lot of time to think and ask questions about what we are seeing. In our sketchbooks we can formulate our thoughts and develop ideas about our experience of the landscape. Here we are on a late winter day in York Harbor Maine.

How We Started Painting in Plein Air

I started painting in plein air in 2004 . I recently went out and painted with my friend Sue Jaworski Stranc who was the person that got us to go outside in the beginning. She had this book by a watercolor artist and she said “Look at these paintings, they are a beautiful! This person is painting them outside, let’s go outside and paint! ”

Sure , we thought,no sweat we will go out there and easily paint some really nice paintings! Here’s the real story!
