“It gave me a lot of joy for 20 minutes focusing on an easy-to-follow challenge without life’s distractions.”

I needed a new source of joy, and I’m very happy I did it! I felt very positive at the end of the challenge. I even tagged on a daily walk and sent a few finished paintings to friends.”

Pet Portrait Painter

My name is Erica and I paint realistic custom portraits of dogs and cats that grief counselors say help my customers work through losing a pet. My art has been featured wildly in the press including Washington Post, My Modern Met and on national and global television.

I grew up in Sweden as the youngest of three daughters and with a beloved Yorkshire terrier named Lucas. I loved to paint from an early age and I sold my first painting at age 10. Now I also teach painting courses for all skill levels.

This 8-Day Painting Challenge is a gentle way to tap into your own creativity, joy and wellbeing. It helps you tune into the whispers of inspirations and creativity in your daily life, even if you can’t even doodle.

There have been times during my 3 decades of being a painter where I’ve lost that spark and the joy of painting, or life has been too overwhelming to feel any creative flow happening. During times like these it’s hard to find the motivation to paint or shake the resistance that’s blocking your creativity. It can be frustrating and disappointing. But those are the times I’ve needed to paint the most, to tap into the meditative joy and wellbeing feelings of creativity.

My Painting Challenge is modeled after my own strategy of gently tapping into my own creativity during the rough times: focusing on making it easy, painting without expectations and making it a daily habit again. We all have the creative energies inside of us, ready to be awakened and strengthened. Taking the step of simply starting is key.

Whether you feel disconnected from your creative side, have painted for years, are just starting out, or you’re simply new to painting acrylics, the 8-day painting challenge is the perfect place to unwind and be inspired.
