I’ve been painting for thirty years, blogging since 2009, and in the last few years have traveled and taught across the United States and Europe to share with over 2,000 others about the JOY of painting. I’ve been called a joy bringer and inspiration maker. I’ve been accused of many things, but those have to be among my favorites!

I could have never realized when I started painting so long ago that I would one day be able to share what I do with a zillion people around the planet just by the click of a button. Magic.

Painting IS a full bodied experience. It’s not just the painting; it is the life that happens around it. It has made me more gratitude aware—eyes to see color and the miracle of life itself that affords me the opportunity to just paint. Each of us filled with divine possibilities and our only responsibility is TO BE US!

To show up and paint how we find the world. To help another to see the amazing in the ordinary.

 

"Lighthearted" Oil, 12" x 12" by artist Dreama Tolle Perry. See her portfolio by visiting www.ArtsyShark.com

“Lighthearted” Oil, 12″ x 12″

 

As you already know, there is no ordinary; only things waiting for an aware eye to SEE it. This is what I love about painting. With each trip to the canvas, we cause our own eyes to open a little wider to the beauty that is around us.

The way the sun lights up the ears of my cat Eddie. The way one color fairly dances when placed against another. How grace resides in something as humble as a brushstroke.

 

"Romancing the Sun" Oil, 12" x 12" by artist Dreama Tolle Perry. See her portfolio by visiting www.ArtsyShark.com

The almost indefinable, unspeakable things we uncover—this is what brings JOY in the doing—and that is our portion as artists. The undeniable beauty of truly experiencing the present moment—disguised in the act of painting!  Who knew??

I AM…Teacher. Writer. Color addict. Lover of looseness. Non serious artist.

    Dreama truly is a joy bringer and inspiration maker. Her kindness and gentle spirit is reflected in all of her wonderful paintings. I have had the opportunity to paint with Dreama and 700 other artists ( “Dreamettes”) online and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences you could imagine!
