The days are longer, the flowers are beginning to bloom, there’s a real sense of rebirth and beginning going on.

April has arrived, it’s a new day, and life is as weird as ever.

This time of year feels like the best time to start a new year, not January, but April. The days are longer, the flowers are beginning to bloom, there’s a real sense of rebirth and beginning going on.

Forever the beginner, I’m making my way through Skillshare video tutorials to help me to create with a purpose, and to create with some confidence. Whether something comes from these creations will be a different matter. For now I’m loving the hippy vibe in play here, I love old scratchy marks and faded colours, even though I have a tendency to blow colours up and make everything bold and bright and dramatic.

Deep down, I’m an old soul so anything nostalgic gives me a warm fuzzy glow.
