It’s that time of year again, where the days are shorter, the nights are longer, and we get much less sunlight.
This can lead to a condition called ‘SAD’ (Seasonal Affective Disorder), a form of depression brought on by lack of natural sunlight. We get Vitamin D naturally from the sun’s rays, which helps produce seratonin and gives us the ‘feel good’ factor. When we don’t get enough vitamin D, we can feel lethargic, unmotivated, moody, and prone to sleeping a lot. (I used to call it ‘going into hibernation!’)
Many people are mis-diagnosed with depression and prescribed pharmaceutical drugs, when all they need is a good dose of sunlight! I used to suffer from SAD, but discovered a way to heal myself using Color Therapy – ever since painting my collection ‘Nature’s Art’ and having them on my walls, I don’t feel ‘SAD’ at all!
I’m going to be in cold, grey England for the next couple of months planning my Book Tour, so I keep my painting Self Love at the foot of my bed; it’s the first thing I see in the morning, and the last thing I see at night:
The vibrant colors really do have a positive effect on my mind and emotions, and I’m sure it will work for you too!
I used ‘Self Love’ to illustrate Year Three of ‘Journey of a Sister’ where she discovers the creative power of her thoughts, and learns how to ‘Meditate to Create’. 8 of my paintings which incorporate Colour Therapy have been used to illustrate my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister’, so you’ll be healing your Self in more ways than one as you read!

Since I know many people of color are affected by SAD, I decided to make my artwork available to download FREE from my Art Page (leave a donation).
Touching the heart…through Art!
