Daily Painting: Only one color

Daily Painting: Only one color

Dear week,

 

Last week before our holiday starts. I’m finishing a lot of things – so no big paintings this week. I made a small collage, though, with only one color.

Daily Painting: The healing power of painting

Daily Painting: The healing power of painting

Dear reader,

 

Today I painted bigger again, on 20/20″, 50/50 cm. I worked very quickly and finished it in one sitting. I’m not too attached to the end-result, I’m focusing more on flow and fun right now.

After a period of being ill, and feeling sloppy and out-of-shape, physically and mentally, I decided to go against my scarcity-of-time-mindset and paint bigger than postcard or business card-size.

And I really experienced the healing power of painting right now. Something starts to move and lighten up ad going back to the core of things, back to the basic joy of living.

 

So, that’s about it for today!

 

with love,

Simone

Daily Painting: Back on my painting horse

Daily Painting: Back on my painting horse

Dear reader,

 

After being ill for about 1,5 weeks, I’m back on my painting horse. I made a very quick collage – it’s not the most refined I ever made, but at least I’m getting my fingers dirty again ;-)!

Podcast Episode 2: Painting and the Purpose of your Life

Podcast Episode 2: Painting and the Purpose of your Life

Dear reader,

 

The topic of today’s podcast is: ‘Painting and the Purpose of your Life’.

 

Sometimes I can get really serious about the role of painting in my life. Is painting my Life Purpose? Should I become a fulltime artist, and earn my living with it? Call it my profession?’  And very often, when I ask myself these questions, I can get constricted into all sorts of internal dialogues, sounding like this:

  • Am I a real painter?
  • Should I have gone to art school?
  • I should have started earlier in my life!
  • Do I have all the qualities that it takes to give painting such an essential role in my life?

 

Today, I want to approach this topic about painting and the purpose of your life in a very light way.

Listen to it here, and have fun!

 

Bye!

Daily Painting: Instead of Taxes

Dear reader,

 

I still have a cold, I have to do my taxes, and I’m very busy otherwise, but anyway: I painted. I will also show the layer before so that you can see the difference.

Bye!
