Tranquil: calmness, quiet, serenity Sunday Inspiration
Posted Jul 9, 2017

Tranquility:  quality or state of being tranquil; calmness; peacefulness; quiet; serenity

“Praises and blame, gain and loss, pleasure and sorrow come and go like the wind. To be happy, rest like a giant tree in the midst of them. ~ Buddha

As I came across that quote… I realized how I was needing to be in a tranquil place…. not necessarily in my surroundings, although that would be nice. I need the quiet calmness in my soul… in by being. I need to be rooted like the tree in my beliefs and knowing, to keep me from going a little crazy in a hectic world.

I pray that you find your tranquility in the business and are able to rest.

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!
