Happy Pictures And Bright Colors For Your Soul

“To get rid of depression, I swim with dolphins”

Patti Stanger
I drew this with Prisma color pencils on Bristol Paper.

When anxiety or depression takes hold of you. Find whatever it is that will pull you from the depths of those thoughts. Run, walk, draw, cook, hug your pet, your loved one. You are worth the time to find out what will work for you.

In a news article by Nicole Spector, “Smiling can trick your brain into happiness — and boost your health”. To read more, here is the link.

Smiling feels so much better than frowning. Do what it takes to get that smile on your face. And if you begin to laugh, even better!

Painting is a blind man’s profession. He paints not what he sees, but what he feels, what he tells himself about what he has seen.

– Pablo Picasso

Smiling can help:

  1. Relaxes the body
  2. Improves your mood
  3. Strengthen you immune system
My Color Pencil Drawing of Pastel Macaroons.

Bright, warm colors help with lifting your mood! They bring out feels of joy and happiness. That’s why I use bright colors in my art. They make me feel relaxed and optimistic!

The whole point is to live life and be- to use all the colors in the crayon box.


I hope that some of my images and colors have brightened a little bit of your day!
