Why I paint?

I paint to relax and force myself to focus on something other than my anxieties.

I paint to distract my hands while I am listening to recorded lectures.

I paint to create art for my friends and family.

I paint because I like envisioning a world with a bit more magic in it.

I paint to remind myself to breathe because you can’t make proper brush strokes when you are holding your breath.

These are just some of the reasons why I paint.

Do you paint? If you do, comment on your reasons for painting. If you don’t, comment on why you don’t paint or dislike painting.
