“Bosque Afternoon” Therapy for the Therapist

30x40 Oil Painting by Amy Hautman

30×40 Oil Painting

In October I rinsed my mind with a hike among the autumn trees along the banks of the Rio Grande. Here in New Mexico is some of the cleanest, clearest air in the country. It feels good to breathe. This large oil painting began that day. Now snow covers the ground and the Aspens are bare but I finished this canvas with memories of the vibrant warm colors and fresh air. Standing in front of this piece takes me right back there.

After being a professional painter for 30 years, I broadened by scope from making art for personal edification to using art to promote health and healing in the world. I work as an Art Therapist with children and families in Santa Fe, New Mexico, witnessing  them tap into their creative energy to gain greater emotional stability, resiliency and peace.
