Eyes of love take courage Crash the stash
Posted May 18, 2017

Looking at the world, relationships and life through eyes of love takes courage. But it’s so much better than bitterness and anger.

While there is a time and place for passions to rise and even some anger, we can’t hold on to it… because we’re the only ones that are held captive by it.

Let it go.. and see things through the eyes of love, and it will change how you respond.

This is a practice and daily reminder to me. Though it’s not easy and I fail at this time and time again… it is what I strive for.

These pages didn’t come together as easily and I had wanted and there were lots of technical difficulties…. but it all worked out.

Enjoy your Crash the Stash 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!
