Walk in the light Simple and peaceful project 7-17-22

This week, I read a beautiful poem by Morgan Harper Nichols. I’ve read it before, but this week my soul must have needed it because it nourished me so much and inspired this piece.

She writes – “When you are exhausted trying to choose which door is best for you, and fear that if you do not make the right choice at a wall of a hundred doors, … slow down and remember, within the Light, you will not fail.

Once you begin to see how Light spills through no matter which door you choose, you will have confidence to meet any challenges that lie ahead.

And even when your mind is filled with questions, your heart is filled with joy, you are learning to see that in every corner, on every wall, there are lessons in them all and you are free to walk with confidence through whatever door before you that leads to new Life.

You have traveled so far, and you choose again today to walk in the Light”. – From the book All Along You Were Blooming

The Light can be different to each of us….. I’ll share in the video what it means to me and how I choose to walk in the light. And that even though there are many things each day that can steal our joy, it’s still possible to have a joyful heart.

I hope you enjoy this simple and peaceful project. You are loved!

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!
