If you want to create a Spiritual Painting Practice try this course by instructor, Whitney Freya – 22 Day Tara Painting Meditation Challenge. Tara, or Green Tara, is the feminine Buddha. She is the Goddess of Compassion and Liberation.
-You will paint an “altar” to TARA. -You will paint an acrylic, multi-layered, mixed media, energetic painting of TARA. -You will learn painting techniques that are both practical and spiritual. -You will learn about TARA and all 21 aspects of TARA. -You will learn more about yourself, what is available to you and all that is possible when we open up to the support and protection of the divine feminine. -You will become stronger, more courageous, and more self-expressive. -Your authentic self will take even more of your “center stage” as you understand new facets of your own personal super powers. -You will learn about mudras and mantras and the sacred symbolism surrounding TARA. -You will paint to guided meditations, exploring a whole new way to cultivate inner peace and self-confidence. -You will illuminate your own inner buddha nature, the core teaching of Buddhism–that we can each achieve buddha-hood.

I experienced so much learning and personal growth in 2020. It was a year for diving deep into my soul and really discovering my purpose and passion.
At the beginning of the year, I was a full time 3D character design and animation student; still feeling the deep loss of my mom’s death the year before. Covid-19 happened and I finished the final months of my course online.
My intention was to seek 9 to 5 employment but then I decided to return to creating fine art and make it a full time business instead. Maybe it sounds a little crazy but I wanted to follow my passion.
I’m grateful for all the amazing people I’ve met this year. Movers and shakers and dreamers who want to make this world a better place.
And I learned to scuba dive this summer. The pandemic and the loss of a loved one makes you realize that life is so short and you need to really experience everything your heart desires.
At the end of this year, I enrolled in a 200 hour yoga teacher training program which has been quite the life changing experience so far. As the year comes to a close, my heart is full of joy. 2021 is going to be amazing!
Joy and adventure, Ann-Marie
Here’s a painting exercise that anyone can do.
1. Paint a circle with any type of paint. I was using acrylic paint for this.
2. Let that dry.
3. Start by making a dot in the centre. Draw counter clockwise as evenly spaced as possible. I used a gold paint marker pan.
