    Dealing with Exhaustion and Burnout

    Dealing with Exhaustion and Burnout

    Is it a funk, is it exhaustion, is it burnout? What’s happening here? Why am I still in bed at lunchtime?

    Just a few of the things that have been going through my head this past week. I had another podcast episode planned for today but it didn’t feel right.

    So instead, Richie and I are chatting about burnout and what it is is like when your body kicks in and tells you that you NEED to slow down.

    My hope in sharing this episode is that it encourages others to take that day off, switch off the phone, ask for help and most importantly REST!

    Dina Wakley - Why It's Okay to Make Bad Art

    Dina Wakley - Why It's Okay to Make Bad Art

    If like me, you are a perfectionist and sometimes feel like your art isn’t good enough - you are going to love this episode. I am chatting with mixed media artist and teacher Dina Wakley.

    In this conversation, Dina reminds us that art is supposed to be fun and it is much more fun when we lower our expectations and stop caring so much about making bad art.

    She shares the wisdom that she has gained from many years of making art and teaching students across the globe.

    We also talk about her role as a signature designer for Ranger Ink and the reason why we all need to buy more supplies from our local art stores!

    How to Create an Engaging Instagram Post

    How to Create an Engaging Instagram Post

    We know that engagement is the holy grail of Instagram but how do you encourage more interaction on your account? Do you ask a question on every post? That seems a bit much. What about posting more video? Or maybe it’s time to master the fancy flat-lay?

    This week we ponder it all and take a look at the most engaging posts we’ve had on @laurahornart over the past two years.

    Join us to find out what we discovered and to hear about our somewhat random (organic is a nicer word) content creation process!

    Betty Krause - Becoming an Abstract Artist Later in Life

    Betty Krause - Becoming an Abstract Artist Later in Life

    Today I am joined by abstract artist, Betty Krause. Betty started painting when she turned 50 and has built up a thriving art business in a short space of time. How did she do it?

    Well, it started with a very deliberate decision to put her mixed media art supplies away and focus on becoming an abstract artist.

    In this episode, Betty talks about removing distractions, hanging in there as you find your art style and using platforms such as Instagram and YouTube to connect and grow your audience.

    For anyone that has ever felt like it is too late to get started, I encourage you to take a listen to Betty’s inspirational story.

    Setting Intentions for 2020

    Setting Intentions for 2020

    Do you set intentions for the year ahead? I love to take a bit of time to dream and visualise what I want for my creative life. Richie is more of a take each day as it comes type so this process is quite new for him!

    In this episode, we talk about how we want to feel in 2020, what our word for the year is and how we are going to integrate it into our day-to -day life.

    We also share our biggest stumbling blocks. From dealing with our ego to being too passive and waiting for things to happen.

    It's a raw and honest conversation but there are also a lot of laughs along the way. We hope you enjoy it and that it encourages you to take some time to explore your own desires for 2020.

    How Do You Find Your Creative Mojo?

    How Do You Find Your Creative Mojo?

    How good is it when your creativity flows? But why does it happen some days but not others?

    Recently, I had the most amazing soul-satisfying burst of painting. Four days of creative bliss. Talk about a confidence boost! It was so good that I didn’t want it to pass by without taking a deeper look at what on earth happened!

    Was it the new playlist I created? Or maybe it was because I was working a bit differently to how I usually do?

    Join me as I break it down and share my experiences and tips for tapping into your Creative Mojo!

    Find the show notes for this episode and this week's vlog at https://www.laurahornart.com/thepodcast/72. In the vlog, you can see what paintings I have been working on plus my original watercolours are back from the framers in their lovely hinge mounted mats. 

    NOTE!!! This is the last podcast episode of 2019. Have a lovely Christmas and happy New Year! Richie and I will be back on the 15 January 2020 with more inspiration to get your creative year off to a flying start! Make sure you are signed up to the Laura Horn Art email newsletter for all the details.
