Have I Inspired You?

Hearing from a new-to-watercolor painter, today, who'd painted along with me in Art Journal - Autumn Aspens, I felt inspired to get busy and create a second Art Journal video post.  I love hearing comments like these. I am also in need of subscribers; so, if I have inspired you, here, on the blog, take a moment to watch, like one or more videos, or, better yet, check out the playlist at channel I am building for wet-on-wet watercolor fans, beginners, and art journalers. If you can take the time, please thumbs-up or subscribe. Thanks.
