Spirit Wings with Kelly Rae Roberts – Month 1

I had so much fun learning more about mixed media painting with Kelly Rae Roberts that when she announced her new Spirit Wings Painting Course, I knew I needed this.  The #1 reason I knew I needed this course? I felt resistance to it. My initial reaction to painting angels was a bit of a cringe and my face scrunched up and I felt like … Continue reading Spirit Wings with Kelly Rae Roberts – Month 1
