Sometimes you just Gotta Wing It

Improvisation and making it up as you go along is sometimes the only way forward without giving a second thought about having the right moment, the right materials, the right experience, or the right knowledge; this also could be about doing something today that lifts your spirit! Do that thing that makes you fly, even if it’s only on the inside!

Still confused about what you’re doing here? Read this…


your TURN to DRAW!

  • Draw things with wings or things that soar (birds, butterflies, airplanes, drones) or maybe even, lose yourself in a cloud study – the home of creatures with the urge to fly!
  • Wing it with non-paintbrush things as paintbrushes – toothpicks, leaves, feathers, a scrap of paper, your fingers…

    Leaves, bubble wrap, flowers, a straw, a palette knife, a cork, and a Percy Pig candy are just a few of the things that can be used to paint with for lack of a paintbrush.

Maybe this Ransom Note gives you a different idea? Let me know!
