Shout out to entrepreneurs
The last year has been hard on us, to bring in extra income (and not lose my mind) I am creating a series of intuitive paintings to sell.
I like big canvas and I can not lie. Yes, this is me standing behind the canvas. It’s almost as tall as me.
I bought some great, big canvas today. I have (2) 30x48, (2) 20x24, and (3)15x30, and some girthy (6)12x12.
If you’re looking for statement pieces, there will be some for sale soon.
The goal is to have these available at Art in the Park the first weekend of May in Perry.
However if you want to preorder and request colors, you can. But the subject will be part of an intuitive series of paintings. Think rainbows and roses and mixed media and layers upon layers. What does intuitive painting mean?
Intuitive painting is an opportunity to explore the inner self through the creative process in a safe, critic free environment. ... The main premise of intuitive painting is to tune in to your own unique creative process whilst releasing attachment to meaning, control, expertise or final product.

Begin. Start. Try.
If we wait until we are good to start something, we’d never begin.
Ask what if. Don’t say if only. It’s where creativity thrives.
I heard this on A Beautiful Anarchy Podcastsnd it really stuck with me, “The hesitant artist will create hesitantly to the degree if we think we can’t, we won’t.”
Begin. Start. Try. Make those your anthem. Not
Expert. Master. Perfection.
I think often about what my life would be like if I hadn’t picked up a paintbrush 13 years ago. I honestly can’t imagine. I don’t feel like I even relate to the person I was before. Yes, I had a creative outlet in doing hair. But it’s not the same. Doing hair you’re at the mercy of what the client wants. When I get to just paint for the hell of it, without worrying about anything else. That’s where the magic happens.
Let us help you find the magic hiding in your life.
March into Creativity
What are you doing for yourself next week? March is all about taking control, marching headfirst into creativity, and allowing art to thrust you into a new way of thinking.
Can you run before you walk?
No. But you can paint before you can paint. Let me say that again. You CAN paint before you can PAINT. Meaning you just have to start. You’ll improve, gain confidence, have room for making it your own, experiment. But first you have to start.
At Lush Art we break a painting one of our artists created down in such a way anyone can follow along. We do this so you can gain skills to develop either a new hobby or a way to destress from your normal day to day. And sometimes both happen. We even had some regulars who went on to join our staff and make money from their creativity.
Don’t forget to take time for you, if you’ve been wanting to take a class. Stop and go look at your calendar. Find a class that can work. Book it. Put it in your calendar because YOU are a priority. YOU deserve time to create.
“The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure. So, you see, they're always looking ahead to something new and exciting. The secret is not to look back.”
