Art literally heals our brains, and as for my own personal experience, I can 100% attest to that.

Grass turns brown.  Flowers that bloom annually hide away.  Even though things are “dying,” they’re dying so that the earth can rest in winter, and then come spring we see again a beloved picture of how God is renewing all things.   Nature is preparing for the sabbath of winter–a lovely and much needed rest after the heat of summer. > Excerpt.
