I know the act of putting a price tag on our heartfelt creations and sending them out into the world can feel vulnerable and overwhelming. In today’s “Hey Flora”, I share my favorite tips for fairly pricing your artwork.
If you are wondering how to balance imagery you’ve found in life while staying open to inspiration and change in the Brave Intuitive Painting process, this blog is for you!
In the last couple weeks, I did two Live Q + A Sessions where I answered all kinds of fun questions about the creative process, art business, inspirations, offerings, and ya know, important things like my favorite shoes.
I just uploaded both these videos for your viewing and listening pleasure and I hope you find them both enjoyable and helpful.
Have you ever wondered how to “find inspiration” from someone else’s art without copying or being overly derivative of their style? This is a great thing to think about! In this blog I talk about some of my favorite artists inspiring me right now, and how to cultivate your own personal style that sources inspiration while being uniquely yours.
Creativity is one of those things that requires you to step into some pretty uncharted territory, often with no plan at all. So, of course, you’re gonna be a little nervous — anything can happen out there on the wilds of your canvas!
This is also why Brave Intuitive Painting is such a thrill. There are no boxes to stay comfortably inside of. There are no rules. And there’s definitely not a step-by-step manual.
However, there are some things I’ve learned over the years that will hopefully breathe some fresh confidence beneath your creative wings, and I’m happy to share those with you here.
If you’re feeling in a rut with the imagery or shapes you’re using in your paintings, I’m happy to share one simple trick that might change everything. I remember the exact moment this concept occurred to me. It was about fifteen years ago, and I was out walking on my birthday with my sketchbook. Read the rest of the story in the blog!
I hope this practice will breathe some fresh life into your paintings. Let me know how it goes!
I cherish the days at the end of each year to reflect on all that’s transpired over the past twelve months and to consciously plant new intentions for the coming year.
Looking forward, I’ve decided my word for 2018 is GRACE — a word that makes my shoulders relax and my breath deepen just by typing it.
To honor this past year, I’m happy to share a few of my favorite creative tidbits, videos, interviews and downloadable PDFs from 2017.
Thank you again for all your support!
Friends. I’ve noticed something about humans these days, and I’m guessing you’ve noticed it too. Whenever we have a spare moment that’s not filled with some kind of stimulation, we reach for our devices to fill the space. And I get it. I’m just as guilty as the next person, but I’m also growing increasingly concerned about this “habit,” especially for creative folks like us.
I’ve been working hard to set up new boundaries and create healthier patterns around my relationship to technology, and I’m happy to share some of my tricks with you today.
Today I have a little gift for you. My amazing right-hand gal, Tina, had the brilliant idea of creating some free downloadable gift tags for you, and voila — here they are!
I also put Lifestyle Goodies, Gift Certificates and Prints on sale for the holidays. Find out more inside!
If you’ve ever wondered how, or if, making art and flexing your creative muscles contributes to the world in a truly impactful and meaningful way, you’re not alone.
As the world changes before our very eyes, these questions feel more important than ever, and it didn’t surprise me at all when they surfaced in a workshop I taught in Northern California last month. Watch the video to hear about the breakthrough we all experienced on our final day together.
