    005 Prioritising Art for Self Care

    005 Prioritising Art for Self Care

    Welcome back to another episode of the Paint Rest Repeat Podcast.


    This fortnight we are rewinding back in time to Pre-Christmas, when Ros was madly painting Christmas baubles and getting ready for the markets. Ros talks about how she is in a high energy phase in her art business by testing the market with new ideas for putting her art out into the world. 


    Laura taking things a little bit slower for the silly season and sitting back and re-assessing her next steps forward in her creative business. She has come to realise that for her energy to be sustainable she needs big periods of rest after completing a big project. They both discuss taking time out in your business for reflection and journalling. Ros talks about being a mother, how she doesnt “stop” and rest lives within a “dreamspace” for her in her busy life. 


    Laura talks about a really positive art therapy session that she recently did, and raises her desire to make more time to do art therapy for her own self care. Ros brings up scheduling time for both of their own personal art practice. Both Ros and Laura contemplate how they might prioritise time for themselves during their week to work on their own art. Ros talks about how she spends a lot of her energy and time in fostering creativity in others, because she has seen the benefits of art for herself that she is excited to share. 


    Laura proposes they both make a commitment of 10 mins of art with no purpose in their week - for self care, fun, play and exploration. Ros jokes about how Laura has flipped her business around and explains how this discussion has led to allowing her to “give herself permission to paint” which is what Ros shares with her students.

    004 How To Get Started On Your Creative Dream

    Welcome back to another episode of the Paint Rest Repeat Podcast.


     


    This fortnight we chat about the creative dream and how to get started on your dream. We share a little about our stories and pick out some specific tips to help you on your own journey.

    Ros shares how she made room for painting when her children were younger. She talks through the practicalities and together Laura and Ros explore the importance of prioritising your personal interests and building a community of believers.

    Why being a rebel is a good thing

    Why personal development is important for all artists

    How to ask for help with your art journey

    How to build a supportive community

    003 The Importance Of Creating An Art Life That Suits You

    Welcome back to another episode of the Paint, Rest, Repeat Podcast. 


     


    This fortnight, we discuss our current art projects and discover the importance of knowing yourself and building an art life that suits you as a unique individual.


     


    We chat about working with private clients, helping them to develop their creative skills and how wonderful it is to be appreciated. We also explore the benefits of art grants and what they can make possible from solo art exhibitions to starting a podcast. 


     


    Ros shares how her in-person “Painting With Friends” acrylic painting workshops are shaping up as well as her upcoming market stall at The Coal Loader Artisan Markets in Waverton, Sydney.


     


    We also touch on the benefits of working online even when working in-person is a preference. Laura and Ros discuss the challenges and the ways that we try to be flexible with our art lives and businesses considering these COVID times.

    002 The Perfectionist Mindset and Moving Forward in Your Creative Practice

    002 The Perfectionist Mindset and Moving Forward in Your Creative Practice

    Welcome back to another episode of the Paint, Rest, Repeat Podcast. This fortnight Ros and Laura talk about feeling vulnerable when putting something new out into the world and we both unpack our insecurities and where we each believe it stems from. Laura shares how her auto-immune condition Lupus has played into her insecurities and Ros shares how she has come to accept herself, by embracing as she says “messy me”.


    We chat about the importance of moving forward in our art practice and Laura discusses the concept of “Practice over perfection” when starting out on your creative journey and how showing up repeatedly helps us to gain confidence. Ros has a similar motto “Progress over perfection” as well as “popping a brave pill” encouraging beginner artists to just keep moving forward.


    We discuss how this art journey ties into our personal development journey uncovering all the broken parts of ourselves and nurturing the inner little artist child. We hope that you find some gems of wisdom and enjoy the Show!
