Love with your whole heart 5 minute art
Posted May 26, 2014

It has been a whirl wind of a couple of weeks! So this weeks video is short and sweet.

Open your heart your whole heart and love. It’s vulnerable but worth it. To often in my life I closed myself off from Love… from vulnerability because I was fearful of being hurt. And while there is no guarantee that you wont be hurt, you also risk not getting to experience the beautiful intimacy of sharing love. With that said, it doesn’t mean that we are careless with our soft and gentle hearts. Finding others who are open, soft and vulnerable is the key. It might take time to find those in life that are on that same path, but it will happen if we search for it.

Hope your Monday and Memorial day is great!

You are loved!

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!
