Season of change mixed media 10-9-22
Posted Oct 9, 2022

Feeling the all the fall feels today in this project. I just spent some relaxing time with all the details and shading on this one. This actually was a very simple project because I used my stencils as my guide.

I was inspired by my journal writing this week. When I take the time to write it really clears my head and my heart.

I wrote this week, “Each season comes for a purpose. Some seasons are hard and some are easy. I can’t change the season but I can change how I look at them.

My seasons have served me, taught me, given me compassion, grace and grit. I will continue to allow each season to teach me and change me for the better and this will only happen when I look at each season with new eyes.”

I’ll share more about it in the video, all with the fun process. I hope you enjoy the project, and always know that 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!
