What do you think Cezanne meant by this?
To me, he meant that the harmony and connection you feel while in nature is parallel or the same as the harmony and connection you feel while you are creating art, or even viewing art in certain cases.
So when making art while in nature, as Cezanne often did since he was a post impressionist painter, wouldn’t that be an ultimate way to induce harmony? I think so!! I know it works for me!
How did you like last week’s blog hop and live journal making tutorial? I thought it was so fun to try the tutorials from such awesome artists. It got me really pumped for the Draw Yourself Back to Nature course starting next Monday! Yay!!
Even when art is a part of your job, it can be tricky to squeeze in time for art that isn’t work related, so while the blog hop was part of my job, it gave me a great excuse to make time to creatively connect with nature and have someone else take the reigns and guide me. I had a blast making MUMBOT’s vintage science poster tutorial last Sunday!
To keep the creative nature connection fun going,

Whether you are novice or seasoned in the realms of nature, journaling, and/or art, Draw Yourself Back to Nature is a wonderful community of creative nature connection inspiration!! It’s so much more than just an art course!
“This course is like learning how to meditate. It gives you permission to stop to look at nature in a new way. The art process itself is rejuvenating, and the world around you slips away, even if it’s just for a few moments.
Kelly offers such wonderful encouragement to pursue an aspect of oneself that might be full of uncertainty/discouragement! Learning so much about oneself through drawing/painting/nature connection becomes a necessary daily routine.” ~Peggy Nolan
