Daily Painting: The healing power of painting

Daily painting

Dear reader,


Today I painted bigger again, on 20/20″, 50/50 cm. I worked very quickly and finished it in one sitting. I’m not too attached to the end-result, I’m focusing more on flow and fun right now.

After a period of being ill, and feeling sloppy and out-of-shape, physically and mentally, I decided to go against my scarcity-of-time-mindset and paint bigger than postcard or business card-size.

And I really experienced the healing power of painting right now. Something starts to move and lighten up ad going back to the core of things, back to the basic joy of living.


So, that’s about it for today!


with love,
