During the pandemic I got into on-line painting tutorials. There are some great ones on YouTube (Free!). I had the paints from other craft projects and the canvasses were easy to pick up as Dollarama was open during pandemic. Why? Don't ask me.  It was a great escape for at least two hours when I …
