Want greener grass? Water it! Mazing Motivation

Maze 364 by Warren Stokes

“The grass is greener where you water it.” Neil Barringham

I chose the quote because not only does it make sense, It is a option I never considered.

The quote provides proof that we are in control of our lives and how we choose to respond. Powerful words to inspire action towards our life purpose!

MAZE ART THERAPY PRINT, COLOR, PLAY, THURSDAY! Mazing Motivation

Mazing Kentucky Derby by Warren Stokes

 

I started drawing maze art in 08. That year started a 10 year trend of bigger life challenges that at the time seemed impossible to overcome.  My sons kept me from giving up and the mazes mixed in the art healed me.  Drawing daily I maze out whats on my mind from the alphabet to political issues.

I’ve started creating mazes for the purpose of sharing with others for art therapy! You can play the maze and color the piece and of course send me a copy to post on the site! Inspired by the Kentucky Derby I feel free to print the image, color it!

Mazing Motivation: Practice may not make perfect but definitely a better maze!

Maze 4 by Warren Stokes

This is maze 4 of 700+ and I have to say looking back that practice definitely helps. Although Im impressed with the pieces and the design its was definitely basic to what I’m creating now. The maze was drawn in pencil and traced in sharpie on a 8×11 piece of paper and probably took 3 weeks to complete. In comparison I could draw the same piece with a animal in it in less than an hour!

I never could have gotten to maze 700 without number 4 and I’m grateful and inspired by the journey of haven drawn and developed my mazing style. As well as the art therapy the maze work has provided along the way.

Show Bombing at the Capitol

I’m sharing photos of a show I did Friday in the park by the Capital building.

Because my art hasn’t been taken seriously by art industry and Denver’s system of pimping artists to pay to be show work Ive decided to take my art directly to the streets.

My goal is to go out weekly and share my work, give out free art kits to youth and visually inspire my community!

Special shout out to Andrew Guardia for taking the photos! And to all my brothers and sisters of Denver and the world that viewed my art, shared opinions and the positive feedback!

 

Mazing Motivation: Think it, feel it, do it with your Heart!

Ur Mazing maze by Warren Stokes

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. Helen Keller

I love this quote! A few months ago I learned that the heart has a brain that remembers, thinks, and detects environment separate from the brain.

When the two are coherent or working together you can become an unstoppable force that can move mountains!
