5 Superpowers Of Drawing - #7 The Art Of Life Podcast



5 Superpowers Of Drawing

Are you feeling exhausted, depleted and run down?

We're into the New Year now and our energy levels can feel a bit lack lustre.  On the one hand we are desperate to shake ourselves up at forge ahead but at the same time, we are just so... tired... Do you know what I mean?

Do not fail, as you go on, to

draw something every day, for no matter how

little it is, it will be well worthwhile, and it will

do you a world of good.

- Cennino Cennini (c1370-c1440)

Yesterday, our boys went back to school after the Christmas break and to say I was tired was an understatement.  Case in point, I went to butter some toast at breakfast time and put my knife into the dog food!

superpowers of drawing

Well, today on the podcast, I'm chatting about the superpowers of drawing.  You might not have thought there were any superpowers associated with drawing but I'm going to share just 5 of them.

painting out the pain

I didn't mention this in the podcast, but the image above (one of many) was created just after my beloved father in law passed away.  Creating this way helped me tend to emotions that were reeling around inside and outside of me. Of course, it didn't help the pain go away but instead gave me a way to help express some of what I was feeling which was such a blessing.

I do hope you enjoy today's podcast and please let me know what benefits you see in your life from drawing/painting/creating - I'd love to hear from you.
