When You’re Afraid to Ruin Your Painting


Do you think your paintings are going to be great if you’re holding back, afraid to ruin them?

So many women get stuck, and don’t finishing paintings (for years!), because the’re afraid to ruin their paintings. Which leads to not even starting their paintings, because they get caught in their fears.

Fear is such a big reason that women don’t paint. It holds them back (for years), longing for what gives their soul purpose. And then beat themselves up for not doing it.

So often they end up doing the laundry, or menial tasks, and then more years go by.

I believe in giving women the support and hand holding they need to get BEYOND their fears. But that’s not enough.

Artists also need practical tools to not only deal with the mindset of being a painter, but to have the KNOW HOW to move through the “awkward teenager” phase of the painting, to create an expression of WHO THEY ARE. (And finish it professionally!)

Being an Artist is such a powerful way to live your life, when you’ve made this shift. It looks like Jean, who just delivered a commission of an expressive family portrait!

It looks like Nathalie, who sold her first two paintings, and is overjoyed to finally be expressing her life long dream of living as an artist.

It looks like Ruth and Faith, who are now teaching art online, and feeling the reward of sharing their creative gift.

It looks like Lee, who’s Art business has increased in every creative aspect since she’s taken this leap forward to work with me.

Or Deb who’s making one-of-a-kind cards and selling them.

And Sherry and Julia, who have both started meaningful, powerfully beautiful series of paintings and plan to book a show this year.

I could go on,  but the true question is – how much longer will you wait to start your life as an Artist?

If you’re ready NOW, and you don’t want to wait another day,  you can book an Art Breakthrough Call with me and my team here. We’ll help you discover what’s holding you back, and get a plan for moving forward with your art.

**Please note these calls are not for everyone. You must be ready to get the support to finally make your Art happen now, and be willing to invest in yourself. Do not book a call if you are just looking for free information.

If that’s you, we’d love to talk with you. You can book your call here. (All of our students say the hardest part, is just starting – and then it feels like the best gift ever to yourself).

All my best!

Yes! Thanks for this Kellie – I can’t wait to learn how to work through the ‘frozen’ state in the middle of my paintings.
