DO YOU WANT TO PAINT – BUT NEVER FIND TIME?

 

Making art on a daily basis is one of the most beautiful things you can do. If you paint daily -or regularly-, you really get into the flow of painting, instead of staying in a cycle of starting and stopping again.

If you paint daily, you start to care less about the final paintings that you make. Because you are making so many paintings, you don’t get so attached to the results. If you make something that you don’t like, you don’t worry, because tomorrow there is another day. Daily painting enables you to start focusing on the process, instead of on the product, which is so much more fun, and you learn so much more along the way.

By painting daily, you invite creativity in your everyday life. That not only makes for beautiful paintings, but also has a silent but unmistakable power to change your life from the inside out. Creating on a regular basis grows your resilience, resourcefulness and joy in life, and it helps you to get out of your head and into the Now.

Daily painting costs time, though. You have to prepare your studio, get out your painting supplies, clean up afterward, and take care of your brushes. If you don’t have tons of spare time every day, you might not even start.

Here is where collage-making comes in: a beautiful and easy way to unleash your creativity and make art on a daily basis.

 

DO YOU WANT TO PAINT – BUT NEVER FIND TIME?

 

Art-making can be a very liberating activity. You can get in the flow, forget about yourself, and just play with the colors, the shapes, the textures. Simply enjoy the process and watch the painting unfold.

But so often it doesn’t work that way. Painting sometimes becomes a struggle. The voice in your head is criticizing you. You doubt yourself. You wonder if you’re meant to be an artist. And you ask yourself: is this it? Why can’t painting be a free-flowing, inspiring experience? Why is this all so difficult?

Before you know it, you throw in the towel. You put your paints and your brushes in a closet. You decide: painting isn’t for you.

It doesn’t have to be that way, though. If you learn to let go of the voice in the head and surrender to the painting process in the Now, your best art flows freely out of your hands. Your ego comes to a standstill. The voice in the head finally shuts up. You’re free to paint from a deeper place inside yourself. That’s a such an joyful process!

The online course ‘The Art of Now’ shows you the way, to make your painting practice a spiritual practice. Not with your eyes closed, not sitting on a meditation cushion, but with a paintbrush in your hand and paint on your fingers. You surrender to the painting process, and you surrender to the Now at the same time.
