I find that it's very soothing and challenging at the same time. It seems like an oxymoron, I suppose: a soothing challenge. But for me, it works.
I started "painting" again yesterday. And I really enjoyed it. So I made another one. And I worked and worked and made a couple more. And I think I intend to make more beyond that!
It really excites me to build a landscape from scratch. No, it's not a messiah thing. It's just the wonder of creating something from nearly nothing. Much like creating a painting.
I'm having so much fun!!
