Winter mixed media – Finding home Sunday inspiration 11-15-20
Posted Nov 15, 2020

The texture, oh the texture…. I was going for a look of wood siding and I love how it came out!

All it took was some paper and gesso. I used super simple supplies for today’s project and wasn’t even sure I was going to create this.

In fact I created another piece right alongside it, because I just wasn’t feeling very Holiday-ish.

But I found my message and my inspiration in the meaning of home. I used my journal page writing for the papers in the background because it infused the meaning and story into the piece.

I share all about it in the video.

Have fun watching!

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!
