Nurturing Creative Expression

I talk about sharing art to Instagram, connecting with old friends, and seeking out places where I can express my creativity. Like yesterday, I’m having a little trouble getting started because I keep starting, and then stopping, and starting and stopping.  I’m starting to share more art related stuff to my Instagram account, which has been really cool.
