I don't know how cold or warm it is where you are but right now I'm dealing with sunshine and about 70 degrees outside. Terrible. I know. I'm actually inside working but will be heading back out to paint this afternoon. It's been cold and warm these days which allow for me to get back out there and do more plein air painting. And I am glad of it.
Last year I choose my "word" of the year as "perseverance". And I stuck to it. This year my word is "PAINT"! And that's what I've been doing as much and as often as I can. I'm painting in the studio. I'm painting at workshops. I'm painting with my friends!!! Each year my focus seems to narrow more and my brain seems to explode all at the same time. Not sure how this happens but it's nice to know my brain can still grow and expand and take in and discard as I grow up.
I've only added a few new pieces to the website and will be adding more. I've got several smalls that I need to photograph and put up on the site. I'm also working on a couple of really large pieces that as soon as they are completed will go up as well. They are definite works in progress and I'm loving them.
I know we're already a month into the new year but I want to say thank you to all of those collectors and new friends out there that supported me this past year in not only buying my work, but coming to see me at festivals and markets and talking and sharing art with me. It's been a blessing and so much fun. I'm looking forward to doing it all again in 2019, y'all!
