Lately I've been pondering this question in my own experience of learning to paint better. They say as we age our brains become less elastic, whatever that means. (sounds ominous) But they also say keeping it challenged with new learning can stimulate neuron growth and new synapses. For me it feels like half the battle is to put a halt on old patterns and habits of doing things and intentionally working on the newly learned information. But is intention enough?
Hello! My name is Wendy and I am passionate about oil painting! Whether in the studio or out in Mother Nature, I get lost in the experience of capturing on canvas the moment and the feel of what I am painting. I pour my love and energy into every single piece of artwork and I hope it shows! This blog is a place where I can use words to talk about art, painting, life, faith, things that make me laugh, and things that inspire. I love every response, so don't be shy about leaving a comment...
