One year of 🎂

Since I started drawing, I’ve also started following more artists both here and on other social media sites. One of my favorite finds has been Steve Kidd who’s also a self taught artist.

      I need to set some time aside to practice painting – I’m easily frustrated! Yes, here’s to progress, success and joy! 🥂
