Art Inspiration: Branching Out


Hello My Fellow Art Lovers- 

"Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don't go out on the branch, you're never going to get the best fruit."
-Sarah Parrish

Between naps with kitties here at the studio we are painting up a storm! I've been painting fruit and foxes, experimenting with painting light in a new way.
