In March’s newsletter, I wrote about the importance of play time to stimulate your creative juices and how I have found the times when I have allowed time for play to be some of my most creative. But what if that still doesn’t work? There certainly are days when even the idea of playing in […]
Here’s the last of my homework from the sketching and watercolor class with Jane LaFazio. This was due weeks ago, but I hadn’t gotten to it.
