Beauty will most likely save the world, and art possesses the magic to represent beauty in all its varieties.
I don’t think there is a better way to cure oneself from boredom, troubles, illnesses and approaching problems than engaging in art. It is not that important which medium, genre, or style we choose: every way of expressing oneself in art is very rewarding. While engaging in creation of art, we open the door to confidence and self-fulfillment. Once we have passed this door, there are millions of opportunities to explore, and endless dreams to turn into reality.
Painting flowers is so rewarding: it feels like being surrounded by beauty all the time.
It takes courage, persistence and willingness to experiment. Natalia’s painting
