Changing seasons Sunday inspiration 9-6-20 with new stencils
Posted Sep 6, 2020

This piece took on a life of it’s own. I started this project to test out the new stencils in the shop and see how they would look with the new Liquitex spray paints I got…. I also decided to turn on the camera and possibly use the video for and Instagram.

But I got drawn in and the story unfolded in between layers. I started asking myself about the seasons and what fall represents for me.

It led to one great question and answer session within me. And a beautiful time of understanding the seasons of my life and the gratitude of each one.

I share in the video how it all unfolded.

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!
