“Ordinary” things, like a kiwi, can lead to colorful play. That average kiwi was the start of this colorful pattern which clearly is not a hyper realistic pattern that I’ve made. It’s more like gum ball kiwis for this week’s Let’s Play video.
What is Let’s Play? It’s all about rediscovering the ability to play. Each month I share a specific strategy that helped me recapture the freedom and fun of play. This month’s theme is being inspired by the everyday. You can see more of the Let’s Play series here.
When I play, there tends to be an Oops or two. Can you see the O.O.P.S. (outstanding opportunity presenting suddenly) here? That Oops made it very easy to decide what to do near the end of the video.

Could I have stopped here? Absolutely. I can stop anywhere I want when I am playing. After all, it is just play. But 2 things kept me painting. First, the orange Oops. Second, my desire to cover up any white space with color.
What will I be doing next with this page? I was feeling the urge to doodle on it but I had to wait for it dry completely. That gave me the time to turn this into a Spark of Art-spiration download for you. If you’d like this free download to play with as well as more Sparks delivered with in my newsletter, just click the button!
