My wild Journal, inspiration behind the art

"Brushing Away Stress: The Therapeutic Impact of Artistic Expression"

Updated: May 6

As a professional artist, I am experiencing stress and anxiety just like you, even if I make art regularly.

But most of the time, I feel these emotions when I am working on the other side of my profession. I spend a lot of time on social media working on my communication and sharing my life as an artist...

I also feel anxiety from my life, we all have ups and down, family problems, stress when thinking of our own future... so many emotions to navigate that sometimes it is too much.

Most artists handle alone every aspect of their career... creating art and then finding ways to share it to the world.

It can lead as well to a lot of stress, exhaustion... that's why I am sharing with you my experience, so maybe it will inspire and help you too!

Here is what I do to release my stress and lower my anxiety...

I write in my journal! Writing down my thoughts really helps to understand my emotions more clearly... to acknowledge them and let them go into the universe.

Letting go is SO important. We cannot control everything in our life and to let go is a way to surrender. Art is really useful in that case.

Being an artist, I sometimes want and need to create art for no purpose than just create. And when I am in that mood, I feel absolutely free and stressless.

Art is a way to express yourself without verbal communication... that is why it helps your neurological system to relax.

I feel that way every time I start a new painting. The first stage of my process is to create an abstract background.

Abstract art is possible to anyone! You just have to START.

I want to share with you a selection of my abstract artworks I created during my 100 paintings challenge so maybe it will inspire you to try!

I encourage you today to create and please come back here to tell me how it made you feel!

I hope this was helpful.
