One of the ways that I loosen up and stay creative every day is by painting backgrounds.
Every painting I create begins with covering up the white space, which is my time to play. I try and go back to whatever techniques and supplies I am most excited about so that each piece beging with fun and joy.
Then my intention is that the joy I feel gets infused into every painting and makes anyone who sees it smile.
In this 9 minute video I share some of my favorite mixed media techniques for creating backgrounds. This always gets me back to playing with my artwork and helps me to overcome creative blocks.
When I play, I find I also enjoy the process and end up liking what I paint more too.
This video is one of the backgrounds we create for a project in The Joy Of Painting.
I am so excited for this class to begin on April 16! We have such an incredible group already… thank you to everyone who has registered.

There are over twenty-one mixed media projects to help you renew your creative expression.
In each video I share encouragement to work with what’s working and walk you through my own mistakes, so you can easily tap back into your own playfullness.
We’ll explore watercolors, paint luscious layers with our fingertips, add glitter and so much more.
This class is perfect if you’re looking to feel more free in your artwork and explore many different painting techniques and styles, especially for painting faces.
And if you know someone who has been looking to reignite their creative spark, feel free to share this video with them (you can use the share buttons below).
