Please put pen to paper to channel your purpose and passion!
In my July newsletter, I suggested getting outside and going on some creative play dates to channel your passion and purpose. I signed myself up for a weekend of painting with Roofless Painters. I am not a painter and have judged myself as having no ability here. My gremlin voices and insecure vibes came up especially because I was with a group of seasoned painters. It was such a great space to let the critical voices out, welcome all vibes, not judge them, let them have their say, and patiently move through them so I could create a new palette of choices. My favorite part of this weekend was being outdoors in the elements and letting nature inspire me to be, breathe, and create. The key to letting the brush strokes flow was non-attachment. I let go of the need to be good, right, perfect, and there was such a beautiful breakthrough.
A big takeaway was that I was given limited color choices so I had to learn how to mix oils and create colors unique to my canvas. I also learned pink is a great neutral!
Here is an exercise to get your creative juices flowing and paint some new brush strokes into your life:
If you had three colors to choose for your personal canvas what would they be? Why did you choose them? What do they say about your personality?
How can you take your three personality colors and share them with the world? What does this understanding of your personal blend of colors help you create in your life?
It’s helpful to now write:
I just learned……….. And this makes me feel………..
Have fun, create, express, and let all your vibes out to play!
Next Workshop with Roofless Painters is Sat, Aug 26 painting at the Eames House in Pacific Palisades, CA. Be there!
