Whatever is beautiful. Whatever is meaningful.
Whatever brings you happiness.
May it be yours this holiday season and
throughout the coming year!
2018 has been a very full year, filled with many great opportunities and an
intentionally creative one, as I focused on learning techniques that took my artwork
into a new direction. Working on wood panels using a variety of mixed media techniques, I created a new series of "joyful garden floral's". (see mixed media panels)
Through this year long process, I found myself creatively engaged and happy. I look forward to continued pleasure and discovery as I further hone my new found skills in 2019!
Thank's so much to all of you for your support through words of encouragement and by purchasing my artwork. You are truly appreciated!!
It's time for a much needed break! I will be taking several weeks off from posting on this blog and all social media. I plan to spend the remainder of the year reflecting and recharging. I intend to slow down, spending more time with family, listening to more of my favorite music, more time outdoors enjoying walks in the country, taking extra-long afternoon tea breaks and perhaps even daily naps!
I won't be idle all the time though, as I will also be working behind the scenes reviewing this past years achievements, tackling unfinished projects, and planning and preparing for a creative and abundant 2019.

I leave you with these words by Anne Landers:
"Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you've always wanted to do but couldn't find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don't think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more."
See you in 2019!
