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.
Aloha! I had the great fortune of spending the past two weeks filling my cup in beautiful Hawaii, and I’m happy to share some of the blessings I received along the way.
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!
Today’s the day I get to introduce you to Niema Lightseed, one of the most gentle, soulful, and authentic women I know. Niema’s course, Medicinal Poetry: Using the Healing Art of Writing to Activate Your Inner Muse is the very first offering featured in The Collective, and it feels like the perfect way to kick off this new collaborative adventure.
If you’ve ever had the slightest inclination to write poetry, I can’t recommend Niema’s course enough. It’s a beautiful blend of freeing your creative voice, while honing your technical poetry writing skills (much like Brave Intuitive Painting!) and Niema is a beautiful teacher. I know you’re going to love her.
It’s time to lift each other up! I meet so many amazing souls who have something truly unique to share. However, they often lack the practical bits like video equipment, an online platform, or an audience to receive their gifts.
For years, I’ve dreamed about how I could collaboratively support these women to bring their extraordinary messages to a larger audience. It’s honestly just where my mind goes.
What I’ve come up with is called, The Collective, and I’m so happy it’s finally here!
The Collective is a collection of soulful online courses featuring savvy teachers from a variety of disciplines, including movement, visual art, poetry, music, nutrition, wellness, business, and more. The common intention behind each offering is to provide inspiring, uplifting, and unique content in well made, easy to digest, beautiful online courses.
Looking forward, I’ve been asking myself how to offer something that feels truly useful and inspiring, while also honoring my need for creative freedom, spaciousness and rest.
After much soul searching, I’ve come up with something that feels like the perfect solution. I’m calling it Real Time, and I made a little video to give you the scoop. Check it out here!
