I Play With Blocks!

Years ago, April gave me a set of architectural blocks as a gift. I've found that they're a great source of inspiration and the set has actually turned into an important tool for sparking my creativity. Not to say I've turned into another Brian Wilson sitting in his infamous sandbox, but these things are fun! As a painter, I'm constantly dealing with the 2-dimensional plane, so playing and exercising my brain with these 3-dimensional blocks really enhances the way I approach and imagine images on my canvases. And I think in general, play enhances our lives and helps us develop cognitive routes to problem solving.

Now if I can only find my toy army men...
