Why I Keep Picking up the Paintbrush

For me where the paint starts the anxiety slowly becomes background noise and often disintegrates altogether. With each brushstroke and splatter I can breathe deeper and I can let go a little more. It doesn’t magically *fix* everything BUT it’s a space and a process where the worrying can be Shhhh’d✨. It’s just one of many reasons why I pick up the paintbrush again and again.
