Lesson 5

Queen for a Day Retreat

Honoring your journey

If there is any message I could give my students, it would be to honor your life and yourself as an artist. Diligently carve out a sacred space where you can escape the daily frenzy of life. Give yourself permission to rest, recharge, and reflect. Would you choose any other life, than that of an artist? As an artist, you are a bit of a scientist and explorer, discerning the nuance of light and shadow, and always studying the beauty that surrounds you. I can’t image any other way of living, breathing or thinking, can you? Let’s choose to never stop opening our hearts, and lives, to this creative journey. The world needs more artists. The world needs more people just exactly…like you!

A little tip

Focus on...

Do you remember what first drew you to painting? Was it the colors in a garden, or reflections on a lake at sunset? Each time you feel that tickle of inspiration, no matter what you are doing, that's the best moment to paint. If you take care of all the daily chores first, by the end of the afternoon or evening, the inspiration has faded, and you're a bit tired. If at all possible, find a way to open the door right when the muse is knocking. The best time to paint, the best paintings of all, are those created while under the fairy dust and magical light, of inspiration.
