I want to wish everyone a very happy 2013. It is a time of the year that we reflect on the previous year and anticipate the new one. Even though I'm not making any resolutions this year, I certainly know the areas of my life that I want to improve in.
I know that I will continuing painting. It is such a joy to me to find a subject that excites me, to plan the composition, to start loose and then begin to define my panting and then to see it develop a life of it's own. It can also be quite a challenge as I am finding with my current painting! I am passionate about my painting sometimes I feel a bit obsessed.
I sincerely hope that art sales improve this year for myself and all the other artists out there.
I am going to make some changes with my blog. I have some ideas in the back of my mind but haven't put them together yet. I feel that I have been doing things the same way and it's getting a little stale. It's time to refresh it!
I have to redo my website. It is so old and it needs to be reborn. I just haven't figured out whether to get it done professionally or to attempt to do it myself.
I will be teaching only three classes a week this year. The two classes that I am teaching at the Art Studio are going very well and I'm going to teach a beginning class at the Adult Learning Center. I will still be doing some shows but I'm going to pick and choose them a little more carefully than before. I just really need to slow down a little bit. And that is something I just don't know how to do!
Happy New Year to all my family and friends. I hope you have health and happiness and that you can continue your lives filled with a passion for something that brings you joy.
