FEARLESS Underway with a FULL House!

FEARLESS is going so well! Wow, are we tired though. But the good kind of tired where you're still so excited for tomorrow. Lots of great stuff lined up for tomorrow too. One is a secret;) pics will come so check back! Thank you to all our ladies who are amazing students. And a big thank you to my FEARLESS gals Rene and Sara Beth! To God be all the glory:)


FEARLESS in Sunny SEASIDE Florida!

Today I received an email from Huntsville International Airport that you can go to Destin for $38 roundtrip!  Book it now for our FEARLESS at SEASIDE!  You cannot beat that deal with gas prices the way they are.  You can also reserve your spot in the workshop and the house--or just the workshop to the right in the sidebar.  We welcome you!  It's gonna be a bright, sunshiny time there. ;)


Getting Ready!

Just a peek at one of the perks our amazing students will get the chance to purchase--gorgeous frames at workshop rates!  We hope they will be inspired by seeing their pieces framed right away and the magic it creates. You can see that Rene really wore herself out unloading, unwrapping, inventorying and hanging all of those! She's so dramatic. ;)

Join us April 7th - 10th at beautiful SEASIDE, FL for a "Simply Fearless at Seaside" workshop.  The plan is similar to March's workshop, but a day shorter and in a more dreamy location!  
Open to 15 people--there are accommodations for 6 ladies in the "house" where we will work from.

Thursday evening we will meet at our "Central Park" home at Ruskin Place in SEASIDE.  (See a tour) We will have a gallery showing for some quick inspiration then go to dinner together.

Friday & Saturday we will arise and paint!  Imagine beautiful architecture, beachy scenes,  a bike leaning against a white picket fence, sunlit still-lifes, and even one of us posing as a beautiful seashore model.  Amazing subject matter to behold!

Sunday, we will have some final inspiration and say good-bye!

Uncork what is inside YOU by going really, really fast!

Understand that the most important thing that you need for Creativity is the thing you already possess – YOU! A trick to find YOU is by giving yourself a time constraint.

Tip - Buy a cute timer from Anthropology and get started discovering who YOU are as an artist.

WHY  Really, really, really fast?
It makes sense that speed can unlock creativity. When we have to do something under extreme time constraints, we have to rely on the more intuitive, subconscious parts of our brain – the part that really defines who YOU are! The time pressure can help suppress the logical/rational/critical parts of your brain that can KILL an idea before you're barely aware of it.  And we know criticism Kills creativity!

Sure you need to PRACTICE the fundamentals but perfect drawing is not the goal in art – perfect expression of human emotion is all that counts! So when you step ONSTAGE – speed is your friend to bring out YOU.
