Catching up & CreativeTherapy

Goodness, it’s been a while. I’ve been busy with life. I’ve continued to paint daily, but nothing passed what I call the gesso test. It wasn’t going to get any better and so I just laid gesso over the images to start over. I’ve sketched some images on the newly gessoed canvases and I hope [...]
