I was a guest on the ‘Learn to Paint’ podcast and here’s what happened…
I was a guest on a Learn to Paint podcast with Kelly Powers. It just aired this week (you’ll want to get on her mailing list so that you get the alerts for all of her shows!).
We covered some fun subjects… talking points I think you will find helpful/inspiring/downright funny…(you know me, never one to pass on any ridiculous thought I’ve ever had.)
Kelly is so organized—she’s put in the minute mark on the things we covered:
