When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them I’m an artist. When I say that most people imagine that I spend my days painting in the studio but day after day of working on art can leave my creative well dry.
Being creative isn’t always easy…
Being creative isn’t always easy. Sometimes, we need a little extra help with igniting the spark. Often, it is ourselves that get in the way of our own creativity… we become paralyzed by perfectionism or we beat ourselves up by not coming up with new creative ideas.
I don’t consider myself too perfect that I can’t benefit from learning. In fact, I take art classes whenever I can fit them into my busy schedule and also get ideas by looking at other people’s art (preferably in person, such as at a museum or art gallery) as much as possible
Has your Creative Well Run Dry?
If you are hoping to be more creative in 2016, I can help with that.
How To Jump Start Your Creativity in 2016
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating as an artist in Creative JumpStart (CJS) 2016, run for the 5th time by Nathalie Kalbach. If you’re not familiar with CJS, it’s a one-of-a-kind online event to kick your creativity into high gear in January 2016.
Learn techniques, discover new materials, and connect with other passionate artists and crafters.
Throughout January participants get 25 downloadable videos from 24 featured artists. I’m proud to be one of those artists, called “JumpStarters.”
For my part of the course, I will be sharing with you a “Picasso Peacock.” You have been begging me to share some peacock painting tips and here is your chance to watch me do it in luminous watercolors. There will be plenty of mixed media and watercolor texture tips packed into this demo so even if you don’t do a peacock like me, you are sure to learn lots of tasty tips that you can incorporate into your own artwork!

Plus 23 other Amazing Artists
And the lineup Nathalie has put together is absolutely incredible. Many of the top online art teachers will be sharing techniques in both watercolor and mixed media. Woo-hoo.
Imagine what you would have to pay if you signed up for each of these artist for a separate course… that would be hundreds of dollars, right? But because we are each taking turnings with a daily inspiration in January we can offer this course at an unbelievable deal.
Watch the video to learn more about the class and then check out the amazing offer which has both an early registration savings and an exclusive coupon…my gift to you!
