New Old Watercolour Paints

Recently I had the pleasure of adopting a whole stash of art and framing supplies. I’m talking watercolour tubes, rulers, piles of paper and picture mats, frames, brushes, palette knives, easels, drawing boards, inks, pencils… you name it. It was a huge pile that filled the trunk of an SUV! + While to some it may look like a pile …

Inktober 2017

Appreciating Wins

I was chatting with one of my girlfriends the other day and I asked her: do you appreciate your wins?
