Art...and things.

Yes, after a few months, it's time to clear out the journal.  Topic of discussion?  What inspires you to create art?  Have you ever had a dry spell?  What got you out of it?  Are dry spells bad, or a useful part of the process? :heart: :thumb23115756: :thumb40546791: :thumb36362006: :heart:
