Art : Lose Yourself to Find Yourself

Who didn't love art class? When you could to listen to music, whip out your creative side and forget your other studies.

I have always had a great love for art. It wasn't until after high school that I realized how therapeutic it was for me. There is nothing better than getting lost in a piece. The past couple years, I have tried to find time here or there to indulge in this hobby. It has provided some relaxing evenings after a stressful day and even some fun wedding gifts for friends.

Mediums of choice: pastel, colored pencil, pencil and charcoal

Pictured are a few of my favorite projects of the last couple years. If you enjoy art in the least, I can't encourage you enough to indulge in it. Life gets busy and downtime may seem impossible. But it'll get you outside your head and might even produce a wall-worthy piece of art!

If art is not your forte, check out a local Wine and Canvas type event. These events have intructors who walk you through each step of a specific piece. I've had a number of friends attend one of these nights and the final results produced are always beautiful!
