Color your soul 4-2-23
Posted Apr 2, 2023

We’re having a color explosion today!! Using my inspiration from my Art of Anthropologie book, I worked hard to get this piece to look like one of the walls in their store.

I love to go and just touch all the finishes and textures in their stores.

This wall had paint cans attached to the wall with paint dripping down. So yummy!….And I love how this turned out. It was super easy and pure fun.

I found this quote and knew it was the one. “Color can speak to the soul in a thousand ways.” – Oscar Wilde

And it’s so true–color can remind us of the ocean, or a feeling, or a person. Color can impact us in so many ways.

So I hope you find all this color…. so so good for your soul! Enjoy the project and always know that you are loved!


The original “Color can speak to the soul” is available HERE and prints are available HERE.

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!
