This summer, I came upon my 5 year anniversary of making bold, vibrant paintings on canvas. I found myself tired and in need of a creative reset.
Earlier this year, I made a decision to diversify my income. My other area of expertise is in Business and Project Management, and I decided to find some part time work I could do from home while continuing to paint on the side.
What resulted from that decision was a tremendous amount of freedom. I freed my paintings from needing to make money, and as a result, I took the pressure off my art. I had the luxury of taking a long break from painting for the first time in those five years, and I took five weeks time to do nothing creative at all.
I took long walks, I went swimming, and I enjoyed the beautiful flowers blooming all around me. I reconnected with my inner values, which include being fully present in the moment and practicing gratitude each and every day.
The first series of paintings I created after this creative reset are my small works for 25 Days of Minis. Each painting is a meditation on the beauty of nature and the desire to savor every moment of life.
One new painting will be released every day from December 1 to 25. My work joins the work of over 70 other carefully curated artists in this annual tradition. Together we bring you a collection of artwork that is personal and perfect for gifting.
I welcome you to join us on this artistic journey, and start your day on the right foot during a busy time of the year as the Daily Delivery Email arrives in your inbox. If you'd like to partake, join us at 25 Days of Minis.
