Love and Art

I left Elizabeth Dinkel's studio in Belleville, on a real dopamine high. Three hours of sketching with fellow artists, soft music, a model who was a joy to draw and good companionship worked wonders with my spirit.

I have also found that during my time of illness that painting provides me with a great release from worry.

This recent video goes a long way to explain why.

  1. Love this short video - something we artists have always known! So glad you are feeling better and that painting is contributing so much to your well being. Wish you could come out here and work in and by my studio for a few days - it is heaven here!
