New class by Tara Leaver – check it out if you want to get more playful with your art.

I’ve participated in another of her courses and keep returning for inspiration, as you have unlimited access once you buy it. The Charcoal class is on my list too! Well, right now I’m just waffling through life, but eventually I hope/expect to find a way back to myself and the studio.

A very timely post on many levels, one of them being how I’m not really posting here at the moment.

My Instagram life being less that prolific so far, I never had very high expectations for it, but lately I’ve been bombarded with new followers.
