Hi everyone are you ready to Paint? I know I am. Are you ready to let go, dive deep and follow your intuition where it wants you to go? This weekend is about painting from that deep place inside and in the most authentic way. Everyone can do this no experience required you have everything you need “YOU.” The paint helps you discover what wants to get out so you can live a better life. Just follow the paint and it will take you where you need to go. Can’t wait to see the paintings that want to come.

My new kitchen took a lot longer than I thought but now it’s almost done and I have my studio back. I”m inviting you to join me for two fabulous days as we go inside, listen to our heart, get out of our own way and let our bodies do the painting. You’ll be amazed at the paintings that come and how they unlock the places that need it the most.

How great it is to share this experience with others and learn from each other along the way. What a great opportunity it is to come together and share the wild adventure of discovering parts of ourselves we didn’t even know were there. If you want to join us please email me at carolyn_winkler@comcast.net and I will add you to the list and send you and email of where to send your check. The details are below. Look forward to seeing you and the wonderful paintings that want to come.

The cost is $180 for the 2 days of painting if it’s your first time and $120 if you have taken it before and want to repeat. The workshop runs May 16-17, Saturday and Sunday, all day from 10-5. The cost includes paints and all art materials, tea and some healthy snacks. Experienced painters and beginners all enjoy this process. It is not about better techniques of painting but more about painting from your authentic heart. All you do is show up, wear old clothes you can get paint on and bring a sack lunch, I will do the rest.

Announcing Spring “INVOKING THE SPIRITS WITHIN – INTUITIVE PAINTING WEEKEND” May 18th-19th at my studio in North Portland.

This weekend we will take blank sheets of paper and thru them discover the deep personal mythologies we hold inside. In the fun of being creative, letting go, letting come you will discover deeper parts of yourself you didn’t know. It is an inward hero’s journey, taking you to wonderful places and like any transformational experience, gives you a new stronger sense of who you are. Sometimes it is very subtle, sometimes really extraordinary, one thing I can guarantee Your Life Will Change.  One of my former students said it best “my life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”  We could all use some hatch opening I suspect and what more gentle, fun, easy way to do just that.

It is really powerful to do this as a group and see everyone’s paintings and watch them change over the weekend.  It is probably why so many students take it several times.  We learn so much from each other as we paint together and share our experience.  It is a way to recharge. There is no right or wrong way to do this and you need no previous art experience, you have all the skill you need. If you can hold a paintbrush the process with do the rest. We are all creative it just hasn’t been nurtured in our lives.  Intuitive Painting is perfect for that.

All you have to do is wear old clothes you can get paint on, bring a sac lunch and I will provide the rest.  If you are a professional artist I highly recommend a weekend like this to re-spark your art. This is about the spirit within you not better techniques of art.  If you are a writer what better way to explore your personal myths for future development.  Great stories come out of these paintings.  The important thing is to not think about that when your doing the process.  “First you paint, let the spirits come to you, then you relate.”

The workshop goes from 10 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday, All art materials I provided and the cost is really reasonable, $160 for both the days. I keep the classes small, limited to 8 students.  Let me know right away if you want to join.

So is it time to do something creative for yourself and join fellow travelers on this journey Invoking the Spirits Within?  We all have creative parts of us wanting to be let out and help us with our lives, let the process begin.  Remember when you were a child, no one had to teach you to paint, and when you painted you didn’t care what anyone else was painting or what they though. You just painted what you wanted, it is kinda like that. I love what someone said once “No one ever doesn’t like a child’s painting.”  This is true, because there is no ego involved it just pure expression.  Get ready for a weekend like that.

To register just email me or message me on Facebook and I will add you to the list.  If you have taken my workshop before you get a discount and can repeat the weekend for $100. Look forward to painting with you, holding the space and meeting your spirits within.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me or call 503 734-6516.  Attached are two paintings from a previous workshop a few years ago.  Might be fun to make up a story about them and what myth might be going on.  They came from not knowing, not having a plan but as you can see they hold so much.  We are going to have fun.

Join me in my studio April 9th and 10th for a journey deep into your self. This weekend is about finding that place inside you where your creative authentic self lives. We all live in a creative universe and are connected to it through our second attention we just need to know how to access it. This extraordinary weekend lets you play with paint, let go of rules and regulations, and discover deep creative parts you didn’t know were there. These two powerful days will help you change your life for the better.

I have been doing this for over 10 years and have seen student after student get stronger every day. By following my guidance and opening up your heart you find a more authentic expression of your self. It is like taking a shamanic journey into your soul. Your life will open up in wonderful ways and inspire you to stay on your path. One of my former students said it best. “My life was like a submarine and this opened up my hatch.”

I hope you can join me and a small tribe of like minded people for this two day retreat for yourself. The details are below. I will be in Mexico traveling the month of March this year so won’t be answering emails until I return. If you have any questions and want to register I suggest you do it now.

My students in South Africa

I am back from South Africa. What an amazing experience. Had a blast sharing this process with 9 fabulous South Africans. All had a breakthrough experience and proves once again how powerful this process is. I look forward to sharing this experience with you in my studio in North Portland on August 7-8. I am starting to register for this weekend now. Please let me know if you want to join us.

I also wanted to share with you some of the photos from the South Africa experience and give you an idea of what their paintings are like. Hope you enjoy them.

Testimonial from Lisa who did the painting above:
Hi Carolyn
Tx so much for the foties. The workshop was amazing. Definitely one I have put on top of my list. I can so see a need for this process in my area + would like to share this workshop with so many others. So once my studio is up + ready (should be in 2months) I will invite others 2 join me.
I have been in contact with Brenda + have discovered so much more about both our paintings. I will NOT be burning mine but rather hanging it up. I have bought matt acrylic seal to paint over.
I feel so honored to have been given the opportunity to attend ur workshop!
I noticed the ELK was the first animal image to come through. Then the CROW. These I painted over + without realizing, the WOLF found his own way to me. How exciting!
After the workshop I came down with terrible flu, infact I am in bed trying to shoo away this “flu gremlin” before my youngest daughters 17th birthday dinner. Getting flu for me after a healing process is a good sign, as I always have a deep healing shift when this happens. So tx for bringing it on hahahaha. Glad u had a safe trip back. Look 4ward 2hearing from u soon!

I am posting this summer workshop early because I am leaving for South Africa April thru June and wanted those of you that wish to take the next one to put it on your calendar. I know how busy our summers get so this lets you plan. While in South Africa I will be teaching workshops and traveling and not sure of my internet access. So if I don’t get back to you until June know that is the reason why.

Below is a painting from the last workshop by someone that had never painted before. Also the comment she made of her experience. I hope some of you decide to join me for this incredible experience of creative self discovery and I look forward to painting with you. Just click on photo for larger version.

“I had a profoundly cathartic experience in this painting workshop that left me feeling whole and clear from the inside. I have never played with paints in this way…and that is exactly what we did! Carolyn is incredibly gifted at creating and holding a safe and sacred space that allows for complete expression for whatever wants to emerge for the artist. I was genuinely surprised and very happy with my painting and look forward to sharing what I have learned here with my children as a way to process feelings and to become “unstuck.” You DO NOT have to be an artist to take this workshop…it is a fantastic and curious journey of self discovery that I will never, ever forget. Thank you Carolyn for being exactly the wonderful person that you are. I cannot thank you enough for the knowledge and passion that you shared with our group this weekend!!” Karli DuBois

It does all this in two short days.

WHAT FORMER PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT CAROLYN’S POWER PAINTING WORKSHOP

“Carolyn, thank you, thank you, thank you! I had such an expanding, opening experience ……
