“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.

I started this blog intending to write about the creative art's health and healing potential. Having been around art all my life, I thought I knew a lot about Art Therapy. But the more I read, the more fascinated I became, and the more I realized how little I knew. This blog is about my journey from full time artist to student at Southwestern College to Art Therapist... and whatever happens along the way.
