Laughter is the best medicine Sunday Inspiration
Posted Apr 2, 2017


They say that laughter is the best medicine. I really believe that. It is proven that laughter lowers blood pressure. When was the last time you laughed so hard you cried? Or smiled so much your face hurt? I love those times. My girlfriends and I will get together and just howl. We eat, drink and laugh alot, we share life and just be. We solve the worlds problems with a smile on our face.

Play time in our lives is so important. Important to our health, our hearts our spirits and minds.  As adults we tend to lose that quest for play and laughter and it is as adults that we need it so much more.

My friend…. grab your significant other, your bff, your kids or whomever and dance in the rain, giggle, laugh till you pee and just breathe.

Enjoy your Sunday Inspiration video.

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!
