Blank Canvas: F*ck It, I'll Paint! Have you ever wanted a fresh start in life? Been handed a situation that you didn’t know how to deal with, or felt “stuck”? In her second book (having written her first as a teenager), Sicola Elliott introduces the concept of the blank canvas and how you can make things move in your life when you decide to say, “F*ck It, I’ll Paint!” and start using the tools that have been at your disposal this whole time. When life presents you with a blank canvas, or your current picture of life has reached its expiration date, you get to decide what you are going to paint next. No one else should be holding that paintbrush but you — that’s your tool and what you do with it will indeed get you somewhere. But it’s up to you to figure out if that somewhere is somewhere you want to be. F*ck It, I’ll Paint! is an attitude that both summons and cultivates the courage we need in order to take hold of our lives, and the blank canvas represents the unlimited amount of opportunities we get to do just that. An artist herself, and student of growth, Sicola infuses these concepts with her own personal touch throughout the book. Being sure of nothing other than the magic of the process, she sees no harm in saying, “F*ck It, I’ll Paint.” Translation? “I will try, I will do it, and I will start over again and again if I need to.” In a world where we are often afraid to show up, Sicola’s lively approach reveals how she does it. Through her stories and recounting of events in her life, you will feel her genuine pulse. The beat of her life’s stories encourages progress, not perfection — because life comes with obstacles, and if you’re breathing, you are guaranteed your share! By telling her refreshing truth, expressing her wounds, and working through her hurt, Sicola invites you to do the same.
