The Dream Collector Workbook

Drawing Swedish furniture - The Dream Collector Workbook - Dala Muses

When I woke up this morning I snapped pictures from the birds and bees in our front yard. I put a picture on Instagram and decided it was going to be a take-it-easy and slower day. One to enjoy the sunshine, draw a little and develop a few coaching exercises.
