September: Creating your Masterpiece . . .
TIP OF THE MONTH
Welcome to September. . .
As you well know, I love metaphors!
This month, see your life as a masterpiece! What do we need to create this masterpiece. . .(drumroll please. . ) a palette! Yes our palette is where we can collect and mix colors. . . thin the colors and play with textures. As a metaphor, sometimes we want to continue with the colors already on the palette, other times, we may prefer to have a whole new set of colors. It is especially exciting to try out just those colors that we have never tried before. . .or use those colors that we used to find ugly! September is a perfect time to learn something new, get out of our comfort zone, add skills or learn about new ways to expand your thinking.
It’s after all the time when there is such a buzz of excitement in the air. Schools are back in session, projects at work re-ignite after the summer break (of course, If you are in the northern hemisphere). It’s the time to express yourself, just like nature will do these coming months exciting colors of foliage.
So discover your palette this month and adjust it! Make the most of your time moving forward. . .now!
Come and create your palette at the studio! Whether during our monthly club starting on September 20th, or during an intensive summer week retreat. Monthly club video- check it out! way cool!: https://youtu.be/KHauPQd5SZc

Our tip this month: Create a metaphorical palette for yourself. Palettes can give us a clue about what our masterpiece may look like!
- Create a color for each aspect in your life, and add it to your palette.
- What do you notice about your current palette? What is missing? What is there a lot of? How do your want it to be?
- Go ahead and create a painting from this palette! Remember to use both hands in creating this painting! Way more fun!
