WHAT IS ZEN?
Merriam-Webster Dictionary says Zen is: "A state of calm attentiveness in which one's actions are guided by intuition rather than by conscious effort."
HOW DOES ZEN APPLY TO PAINTING?
We are so caught up in the daily stresses of life (especially now!) that we often forget to slow down, relax, and take time for our mind, body, and soul. Much like Zen meditation, painting has many therapeutic benefits that can make a tremendous difference in our lives. Painting, like Zen meditation, lets us focus on the task at hand and concentrate on the moment. This mindful shift helps release negativity and stress and provide the ultimate relaxation experience!
