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!

Thanks, Dotty! I need to hear these truths also over and over again. I liked the length too! I’m going to experiment more with this length: you don’t need heaps of times to listen to them.
Simone, this podcast is WONDERFUL and comes to me at a time when I had to dismantle my little in-house studio space to make a room for house guests, and I have not been painting for over a week with our house full of family. Now, I am stepping back into re-establishing my studio and preparing to paint again—and I find myself with questions about the purpose of my painting. Thank you for bringing a light touch and essential truth to my inner dialogue!
I really liked the length of this podcast. You made a clear point and didn’t overwork it—perfect!
