Inside this Mindfulness Paintings book you will find examples of creative journaling. This journaling process is similar to my art making process. With this comes a little bit of unsophistication. I may fail to explain every thought fully. Things are a little disorganized. I look on these entries as creative expression, so I allow myself the liberty to be spontaneous. A little blunder here and there gets bypassed so I can preserve this spontaneity. I’m sharing my art process, not my product, with these handwritten entries. I challenge you to embrace these types of imperfections as well, so your process is not compromised. See me meeting this challenge inside Mindfulness Paintings and note that I am fearlessly flawed. Join me in that spirit as we journey through this book and create mindful art together.
This Mindfulness Paintings book is a book full of creative meditation exercises, artwork, and art activities that will help you embrace the present moment. You will find suggestions for noticing and accepting your thoughts and feelings through creative techniques.
You will become more aware of how your body and mind are connected as you try some calming art experiences. An artist’s voice will lead you to notice and observe your own thoughts without judgement or distraction. You will develop more compassion for yourself and others as you quiet your mind and make something new.
With each line, stroke, color, and shape you make, you just might pay attention to things you have not noticed before. You will have the opportunity to feel new joy and peace as you hear the voice of your artist at work, as you play with art making tools, and as you try some simple mindfulness art techniques and exercises. Open this book, pick up your paintbrush, and allow your journey into the present moment begin!
