What differences have I noticed about the way I create? It seems to come easier and I have less stress about deadlines and getting a painting done.

What media or material do I want to experiment? I have done very little with colored pencils. I have a variety of types and would like to do more with them.

Am developing a creative practice? Absolutely, its easy to sit down and jump right in instead of staring and not knowing what to do.

Have I noticed resistance, self-criticism or anxiety? Have do I deal with it? I still have issues with self-criticism and comparing myself to others. I try not to dwell on it and just walk away from what I was working on.
