November's gift for the creative soul
A month of sharing creative experiences, paint with me (video)
Hey there! Just for November, in addition to our regular newsletter, enjoy weekly shares of creative surprises & gifts. Happy Surprise is your weekly dose of creativity and creative practices. If this video sparks something in you, feel free to spread the love by leaving a comment. Thanks for tuning in! Susan x

BONUS: Download the original fish painting
Normally, Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for the art project and creative journey updates. However, I've held onto this video for a few weeks, pondering several reasons whether to share it with you, until I ultimately decided, et voila: why not share it?
Sometimes we can all do with the need for rest, relaxation, and a touch of play in our days. Speaking of playfulness, this video captures my process of painting a fish a few weeks back. You can find the full post here. The essence lies in keeping things simple while adding a playful touch, experimenting with gouache paint, markers, or any medium you prefer.
Immersing oneself in art or any creative pursuit, be it writing, baking, gardening, wandering out in nature, or visiting a museum, serves as a rejuvenating escape.
November happens to be my favourite month, not because I enjoy autumn, but because it symbolizes my birthday. I prefer extending the celebration beyond a single day to embrace the entire month! Why confine festivities to just one day, right? Rather than solely focusing on receiving gifts and making it all about me, I’ll be sharing an additional weekly offering alongside the regular creative process essay throughout November.
Stay tuned for upcoming creative classes
I'm prepping this month for some fun and inspiring watercolor and gouache classes for Skillshare at the end of next month, in addition to a holiday season class coming soon!
