Another successful Fearless Abstract Painting workshop. But you don't have to take my word for it. If I ever had any doubts about my calling as a fearless abstract painting instructor, this touching testimonial puts all of those fears to rest:
"The magic that is Samantha! Yesterday I finished taking my 2nd Fearless course with this woman and it leaves me wanting more... More instruction, of course, but also more of the feeling that this tiny woman can create in her workshops.
In her presence, I can feel weight and doubt being lifted and replaced by a joy of sheer abandonment and acceptance. Besides the sense of empowerment Samantha evokes, it is wonderful to see the joy and brightness in many of the faces that have tentatively entered into her realm.
Samantha is like a magical being who unselfishly opens her creative soul for all to enjoy. Those that are open and able to receive the gift that she is willing to share are the lucky ones, because the philosophies that she espouses can be applied to many areas of life. Life is art. Art is life. Samantha is a gift to art and life.
Samantha, I am so lucky to have met you!" Brenda Dyck
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
