WOYWW - New Style & Inspiration

It's been a fairly busy, dramatic week but I'm happy to be settled down at my cozy desk for another round of WOYWW.  I'm really enjoying getting back into the swing of things, making new bloggie friends and sharing/exchanging wonderful, creative ideas.  Uh huh.  :)

I'm simply loving my creative space over the past few weeks - sipping a hot cuppa, gazing out the large, glass window pane, all the while doodling and painting away.  Ahhhhh.  It's really been quite blissful, let me tell you!

In fact, I've recently started reading a borrowed book called "The Creative License" by Danny Gregory.   It's quite brilliant and thus, the inspired drawing above.  This is my very first complete loose-style sketch and it seems to work for me.

So, I plan to continue on this very inspirational journey simply to see what the final results are.  Who knows what magic might be found between the start and finish!


For more wonderful, creative desks, please visit WOYWW here.
