Watercolor class starts tomorrow. The first thing we’re painting is fall leaves. You can click on the fall coloring page image, download it, and paint or color it with us.
 
Fall leaf season is a perfect time to begin if you’re looking for a way to practice a mindful approach to living. Take the time to gather a leaf, look at all the nuances of color and attempt to record what you see. The goal isn’t to get it “right” or make a “work of art.” The goal is to live fully alive to what is present in this minute. The wonder of seasonal changes. The mystery of chemistry as the leaves change. To leave blame, worry, angst, and bitterness behind. Even 5 minutes spent looking at a leaf can center and ground you in profound ways.
 
Life doesn’t have to be hard. Step into the wonder.
