Show What Results You made when releasing stress/frustration through art work!

This is what my results after all the stress (a.k.a piled up paper works and staring at computers for 9hrs 5days/week)

I ended up doodling some crazy lines....and putting random colors that doesnt make any sense LOL

You're right Maria, definitely a comfort zone.

I like to draw random lines and color in the negative spaces and sometimes it is surprising what comes of them.  I like yours even though you said you had a frustrating day your smiles showed up in the drawings. /:-}

Thanks Jan!.. i browse your artworks and i find them really pretty.. specially that ceramic pot everybody calls Hopi... its awesome.. the colors are great!

Very happy looking piece, most especially when you consider that stress release was the drive behind the art! I bet you felt relieved of some stress once you were done!

Very nice work, Maria! Despite your stress it looks very cheerful. Like you were trying to find your 'happy place' :)

When I'm mildly stressed with the day to day irritations, my art is a wonderful escape, very therapeutic and comforting. However, when I'm super-stressed over a major event (usually regarding finances or serious health situations) then I'm too stressed to even focus or sit still long enough to create art. Not good.

Trying to force myself to create during those major-stress times since you have to have some release from the pressure.

i totally agree!!!!!

When I am stressed I like to sit on my swing on the back porch and look at the trees and flowers and how the butterflies and bees live in harmony sharing not only space but sharing the food supply. The birds join in with song and the breeze cools me and before I know it I am distressed and ready to do what needs to be done. Nature has a way of calming you down.

I agree with you Jan!

oh definitely that helps a lot too!!! i love nature and for some reason it got a way of healing people of their negative vibes...

Absolutely! Nature is a great healer. Walking and taking in the sights and sounds of nature can be very restorative. Also helps to be around water like ponds, streams, rivers, beaches, etc. if you can.
