This painting process is about allowing your
art to unfold naturally, on its own time, and in
delightful ways you can’t even imagine before
you start. It’s tempting, and very natural, to
want to know what your paintings are going to
look like before they are finished, but the truth
is you never really know what the future holds.
Incredible amounts of energy are wasted by
chasing what you cannot catch. Let go of the
chase and embrace the unknown. By releasing
the need to control the future, you open
yourself up to the magic of the moment where
everything is possible.
To support your journey into the unknown
and encourage you to make space for the
unexpected, I’ve included prompts and
suggestions throughout this book. Here’s a
“Be Brave Challenge” to get you started on
your journey into uncharted territory.

Opportunities to face fears and embrace the unknown abound in our daily lives.
When you listen and respond to your inner voice, even when it’s daunting, you will
move in new directions, connect with others, and exist in a world of possibility.
Are you compelled to talk to a stranger? Are you drawn to explore a new culture?
Do you have unrealized passions? Do you resist these urges because they are
too scary, too crazy, or too uncertain? Consider that by honoring and following
these urges, you are saying yes to something larger than your rational mind while
nudging yourself gently toward more opportunity. The next time you have an
urge to do something, respect your intuition and take action. Be brave and don’t
look back.
