Getting Out of a Painting Funk
There is no doubt about it, some painting days are hard. It's crushing to look at a painting at the end of a session, only to wish that you hadn't touched it at all. Then there are the days when you can't even get motivated to pick up a paintbrush. So how do you get out of a painting funk? Join me this week as I chat about my own experiences and share what has been helping me to get my painting mojo back!
So You Want to Print Your Art?
This episode we are responding to listener questions. We answer a few quick ones and then settle in for a conversation about making your own art prints. Digitizing and printing your art is technical, time-consuming and requires a significant investment in equipment and materials. BUT it is also a fantastic way for getting your art out into the world and can open the door to exciting opportunities. Join us this week as we talk about the process, the pros and the cons of printing.
Going ALL IN on our Creative Business
There's nothing quite like a trip away, to get you thinking and re-evaluating. That's just what happened when we visited artist and entrepreneur, Doulene Walker, in Bali last month (see last weeks podcast).
The experience inspired us to think bigger and go ALL IN on running our business (and our home) together. Heads up, we talk about housework nearly as much as painting in this episode! It's an interesting conversation about shifting roles and new possibilities. Enjoy!
Being Brave in Bali
This week's podcast might be a short one but it is BIG in so many ways! We are with artist, Doulene Walker, and coming to you from beautiful Bali. Being brave is the theme this week and it is fitting as we have exciting news to share! If you have ever imagined taking a week away from the hustle and bustle to immerse yourself in a rich painting and cultural experience, you are going to want to listen in.

We want you to get out there and make the most of this possibility filled platform.

Painting and Parenthood
Raising children while running a creative business is not easy. It's a constant juggle. We haven't got it all figured out but we have learned a few things along the way. So grab a cup of tea and settle in. It's time to let go of the guilt, ease the overwhelm and acknowledge the amazing work you are doing.
The Fear of Not Being Good Enough
When it comes to sending your art out into the world, fear can stop you in your tracks. The fear that your work isn't up to scratch. The worry that you're not a 'real' artist. This week we share our experiences with fear. We want you to know that we feel it too. Every single day. But we're not letting it be the boss and you shouldn't either!

The Sacred Pause
