No matter how wobbly you feel, no matter how many times you have been told you are not artistic... please dismiss it and come on in and play!
I absolutely LOVED creating this mixed media Tree. Mixed media simply means I used lots of different materials whilst creating it. You could use acrylic paints, oil pastels, soft pastels, wax crayons... you can use anything you wish.
Once you have made one, you will probably want to make another! Most people who create with my courses, create a number of different paintings from the same course. Each time we create it is totally different, depending on how we are feeling then.
I used Oil Pastels, Neon Oil Pastels (which are just luscious!), Caran D'Ache Watercolour Crayons, a tiny amount of Acrylic Paint, some Glitter because my inner Magpie loves to sparkle and shine.
I worked on sturdy Acrylic Painting paper although you might like to work on hardboard.
It may look tricky to create, but I promise you it is very, very simple and yet incredibly beautiful to gaze at. It is satisfying, colourful, joyful, mindful, fun, creative & distracting.
You really will LOVE creating this!
Although I share an image of my creation, your painting will be nothing like mine. Your Tree will be completely unique to You, to your characteristics. It will be as unique as your DNA and this is what I celebrate most with you - YOU!
You may be curious as to why it is called "The Wisdom Within Me"
When you create, you will be able to hear yourself, you will be invited to really Listen to You, to your feelings and thoughts, your stories you share within as you create. It is an amazing experience and also a wonderful opportunity to Attend to Yourself with Self Compassion, Self Love and Self Acceptance.
You may wonder why I am interested in helping you to Listen to Yourself. Well... we mostly listen to others... we listen and we adapt and fit in and comply and compromise ourselves...
We Rarely Listen Fully to our selves and this is harmful to our Well Being - to be ignored, to be dismissed or discounted is not only painful but it created dissonance, low self esteem, low confidence and so much more.
When we begin to attune to ourselves and really hear our inner voice, we begin to grow and feel happier and more content.
I will teach you how to hear yourself, how to develop Empathy for yourself
how to manage your fierce inner critic who is determined to keep you playing small
I want to help you to SHINE and be YOU!
and I do this through my art courses... we make luscious art and we take care of ourselves in the process. It is an incredible gift to oneself.
Many, many people have painted with me in person and online. The wonderful part about online is, you have access to my videos whenever you wish, as many times as you wish. You can paint this Tree once, thrice, ten times and each time will be different and as beautiful as the first.
You will develop the relationship you have with yourself in a therapeutic way which is PRICELESS!
and I feel so sure you will just Love this entire experience!
so sign up is just below... you will have immediate access to my videos and to my written prompts which will gently and lovingly lead you through the whole process from blank paper to finished colourful Tree which you will just LOVE!
Come on in... experience all my love and acceptance which will make you and your artist self bloom and grow into your Truest Self
