One thing I love about art is its lessons we learn that so easily apply to life. I tried something bc I didn't really have a plan and it didn't go well but thanks to the magic of gesso I covered and had a whole new surface to work on. The end of school can be so similar. Summer is like a white wash that lets us forget all the difficult parts and start fresh. I am so grateful for gesso and for summer. #creativelifehappylife #cultivatecreativity #carveouttimeforart #abmlifeiscolorful…

One of my best tips for capturing inspiration while you travel is stupid simple: keep a running note of random thoughts on your phone. Anything that is interesting funny cool beautiful makes you think twice. Write it down. Come back to it later and transfer it all into your journal. I shared 25 more actionable tip and exercises plus show you how to create an inspiration journal in my new class Travel Like An Artist.
