Intuitive Painting

Do you want to have fun? Do you want to unleash your creativity? Don't think you can? Already a creative with an established style?
Shake it up, do something new, do something different.

We are ALL creative beings... we do it everyday, with a variety of tools... with words, with food, with our voices, pen and paper, in the way we dress. There are so many ways in which we create on a daily basis so why not add some new tools to your toolbox?  

Crank up your favorite tunes, pick up a paintbrush... or better yet, use your fingers... dip into some delicious paint, pick any color, pick your faves, pick the ones you'd never use and put them onto canvas, wood or even a piece of paper. Drip it, drizzle it, splatter it... there is no right or wrong way to go about it... just go with the flow, let it come naturally, let it come out of your body... don't think about it or contemplate what it looks like, whether it is "pretty" or "ugly" or "not working". Let go of those notions... make room for the experience just.as.it.IS. It is ALL right and ALL good. Go for it, there is nothing to lose...in fact, there is  potential for growth. It is joy and love and passion and FREEDOM. It is the experience of being alive and in the moment... right now... breathe it, be it, let yourself go... HAVE FUN!

I always begin my paintings in an intuitive manner...

For more examples of this process and various stages, check out this post.

I am so excited to be offering this class on Saturday, October 13th from 3-6pm. We will explore this creative process and experiment with a variety of exercises to tap in to our deep well of creative expression.

If you cannot make it to this class, I will be offering more opportunities in the future. Keep ya posted... Or, if you're like me and just HAVE to jump in right away... experiment for yourself... go for it... you can do it...and Enjoy!

  1. I am soooo with you on this. People always say "I'm not creative" but most of the time they have just not allowed that part of themselves to surface. Well done! June Madd

  2. Yes, June! We are all creative... some of us just need to be given the safe space to explore.
