Create a Life Painting

Life Painting: a painting showing the visual form of your ideal/dream life.  Can be a scene, a montage of scenes, or any way your mind allows you to represent your ideal life.

I loved the idea of creating a life painting from the first moment I heard about it .  Flash forward four years, five moves and endless hours of procrastination and I’ve finally completed it (above…the picture is horrendous I know.  My camera is so old that my phone took the picture above and turned out ten times better!).

A life painting is a great way to visualize your dream life.  First, your right brain creatively transforms a blank canvas into a masterpiece.  Next, you get to visualize your dream life every time you look at it.  It’s like magic in a paint tube.

How to begin creating your own life painting?  Draw out a rough sketch on paper. Decide what’s important to you and your future life.  Brainstorm ways to incorporate all these themes into your canvas.

And then get going!  Even if it takes you years to finish, as it took me, time will go by anyway–you might as well spend some of it transforming your future.
