Episode #26: Random Inspiration

It’s also why I love art challenges and for anyone who’s not aware, July is World Watercolor Month! I hope everyone listening who loves to paint and color with watercolor will join us throughout the month. Just add the hashtag #WorldWatercolorMonth when you post your watercolor art on social media in July. And now, I hope you enjoy this little collection of stories filled with random inspiration.
