Monday Motivator: Mindful and Mindfilling Painting

Monday motivator art quotes

“When you paint, don’t just pay attention to the subject before you but expand your awareness to include the thoughts that drive your brush.”
Michael Chelsey Johnson

One of the myriad reasons I love painting is that it’s mind filling: it has the ability to occupy every part of my mind, stimulating and stilling simultaneously. It’s the combination of tactile and mental, the comfort of familiar and the discomfort of a fresh challenge against myself.
