The artist Renatė Lušis leads art therapy club "Modus Vivendi"
that is located in the Hospital for the mentally ill in Klaipeda. She says:
"Art therapy can add great harmony to life"

love needs no authority except itself
We trust that there is no such thing as no chance.

The things that we love tell us what we are
Saint Thomas Aquinas


No to farewell

when a sheet of paper was gifted to Viktorelis, these postcards appeared. His crutch were forgotten and the felt-tip pen created a colorful tale. Wow...
The similar miracles happen each time the patients of psychiatric hospital receive the paintbrush. Just browse the archives of Modus Vivendi. Lots of awe inspiring pictures will meet you here - you will dive not into the mourning, but the wonderland...
That's a miracle that repeats itself each time the patients are supplied with the art materials for a free.
Unfortunately, it is otherwise in my case. I  need to stop my activity because of the material expenses. This blog was started on a voluntary basic, and my disability pension doesn't allow me to continue the work for a free : not my consciousness but the empty wallet stooped my work on Modus Vivendi. 
I am leaving Modus Vivendi blog but not the wish to share the light. I don't silence but welcome you to my personal blog Butterfly in Plaster.Its essence will remain the same because the talking about disability deals not with body health but the moral problems. It is the writing about the timeless values. So I don't say farewell but till meeting dear readers. Butterfly in Plaster sends best wishes to you.

  5. Interesting perspective on mental illness depicted here. I do believe art and animals help the mind and spirit so much!

    Hello! I wanted to leave a comment on the slide show of the artists. However, I could not find a comment link. The art work is striking, I would say.

    If blogging does not keep us sane, I may take up painting.
