Creating for the Creator Sunday Inspiration
Posted Oct 4, 2015


My week was crazy busy, I’m sure like you, but when I get paint on paper and I quiet my soul and create….. It makes everything feel right.

Here is your Sunday Inspiration video… Enjoy!

Create today for the Creator…. for something bigger than you, for something that isn’t judging. For the sake of creating. For soul time. For the blessing. Freedom comes when we’re in that place. It’s quiet and peaceful. Our lives might not be quiet and peaceful. In fact our lives can be completely crazy and hard and scary. But creating in that soul space can quiet all the noise.There is no judging in this place it’s just you and something bigger.

Be inspired and know that 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!

    Thank you very much for sharing your work process and the thoughts behind it. I often stumble across words that then need to be put into an art journal page or painting too.
    As you say, it turns into an urge to do so.
    As my Sunday is almost over now, I take the inspiration into the next week and will create for the sake of creating!
    Have a great and creative Sunday – Irma
