The Secret Moments of an Artist (plus free goodie)

What it really feels like to stare at a blank canvas Studio door shuts behind me.  Click of the switch fills the room with light.  Power on Grace Radio to my favorite station.  Snap of the paint lid before a surge of black fills the tray.  Soft swish of a round brush as the first…

A shame, really, that those…
