I broke my wrist on my drawing hand a while back, and I’m just getting to the point where I can do a few things, but when I was really struggling I devoted myself to learning Daz Studio and had quite a bit of fun with it.  I mean, who doesn’t like a pirate pin-up?PP1

I’ve been working on learning the new features of Painter ’18 so far they have had a couple of tutorials that help you paint like Bob Ross.  This is a huge departure for me, I’m usually very meticulous about layout and ideas before I ever make a final piece, but this is flying off the seat of your pants, and so far it’s been quite fun!Waterfall

  • Get creative at work.

On average, a woman with a creative job has the cardiovascular fitness and other health attributes of someone six years younger, according to a recent study. What does “creative” mean? Acting, writing or painting are obvious picks, but any job can count as long as you find it interesting and it lets you develop new skills, experts say.



Make sure you cover the basics.

Eating five servings of fruits and veggies a day, being active, not smoking, and drinking in moderation could add 14 years to your life, according to new British research. Too tall an order? Tackle just the exercise part: A recent study by the National Cancer Institute found that older people who got at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week were less likely to die over the next seven years than those who didn’t.



Do something fun.

Women who are feeling “happy, excited or content” have lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol, as well as C-reactive protein and interleukin-6—two markers of inflammation linked to heart disease, a University College London study found. It may not take a Ph.D. to figure out that being happy is good for you, but this is one of the first studies to pinpoint a biological reason. So the next time you’re feeling frazzled, make plans to do anything that’ll get you smiling.
