I only have about 15 minutes during my work break to do art. Inside the coffeehouse I can use my iPad to create mini-scenes during those minutes. They're called "speed-paints" by the pro's, they're tiny (only a few inches wide) and they can do dozens of them really fast. Many of these are fantasy environments, which I have done plenty of, so I decided to try one. This is an arctic land with Chinoiserie (faux-Chinese) ice towers. They actually build ice palaces in China for the Harbin ice and snow festival, currently going on. I hope to be doing more of these mini-scenes as time and coffee allow.
