Let me start off by saying I love art. I love it as an expression, a hobby, and to inspire and touch other's hearts as well. Art relieves stress and helps expression. It is a gift. It is a gift to the creator and a gift to the observer. I see art as a creative satisfaction that will touch your inner self or simply pleasing to the eyes. I see art in everything around me. When there is no one to talk to and I am feeling down, I have art to brighten me up for the most part. It takes your mind off just for a moment. Art is simply my mentor and counselor when it's just myself that I have. Not only do I enjoy it as a hobby but it relieves my daily stress.
