Creative Play

It can feel like it is wasting time to take an hour or so to just play in the studio...but even time spent splashing paint on paper with no real plan can be so restorative. It was a busy week and I needed to just play with color.



This paper will be turned into my next art journal eventually, but this weekend it just needed to be about fun and experimentation.
