February HM Mini Goal – Paint Something

We hope watching the sunrise in January brought some peace and reflection to your month, and served as a great way to kick off our 2024 HM Mini Goal Program! With photo submissions sent from across the U.S., from Hawaii to Massachusetts and everywhere in between, we loved seeing how everyone took in the beauty of a sunrise. Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this blog post to see a few of the many inspiring submissions we received throughout January!

For February, we are tasked with expressing our creativity, so let’s get out there and paint something!

So much about finding balance in our adult lives is about reconnecting with the creative impulses and spontaneous joys of our childhood. There’s a freedom in creating new works of art from scratch, letting our imaginations lead us. And when we participate in these creative acts, it often leads us to other sorts of discoveries and breakthroughs—in addition to restoring calm and balance. This month, get back in touch with your creative side by painting something. It could be a traditional acrylic painting on canvas, or you might explore with watercolors. You can also paint a piece of pottery or decorative element for your home, inside or out. For inspiration, look to famous artworks, online tutorials and the world around you. And remember—there are no mistakes in painting, just new creative directions waiting to be explored, and an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary!

In case it isn’t obvious, most of our mini goals are written in a way to leave them open to interpretation, so feel free to have some fun with that, regardless if you are an expert or a novice. For example, “paint something” could mean a canvas, or it could mean a fence—just be sure to paint something! After you’ve accomplished February’s goal, tag #hmminigoals on your social media channels when you finish your masterpiece this month, and email your photos to minigoals@hughesmarino.com. We’ll share photos throughout the month of February, and will feature our top shots in our blog post in March, so stay tuned. Enjoy getting in touch with your creative side!

As promised, here are some of the amazing sunrise submission photos we received in January!
