Hello everyone I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday time?
I decided to pop in and wish you all a Happy New Year (slightly ahead of time)
I also wanted to tell you that I have chosen my 'word for the year' I have seen so many of you do this before and I thought I would give it a go, I don't make new years resolutions as such so this fits in better with me :o)
My word for the year is NURTURE
I chose this word for many reasons mainly though because all of this past year I have worked my ass off with making my art into a career and let my health amongst other things slide and am now regretting that after a wake up call from the doctors the other week.
I have always had issues with my spine after an accident when I was younger and my constant work and lack of self care has led to me having more problems than I would care to admit.........Anyway this leads me to my word for the year which will put my health/welfare first and other things second.
This doesn't mean I won't be painting anymore (I know some of you will be fretting ;o) it just means that I won't be working on as many paintings as before or for as long a period of time in one go, I will still be doing my weekly updates but maybe there will be 3 or 4 paintings per week rather than 8 or 9 ;o)
I will also be trying to incorporate my word for the year into my artwork and will be focusing on making paintings that truly make my heart sing instead of trying to do anything and everything ;o)
So with that in mind here is a sneaky peak at 2 paintings I will be putting into my etsy shop sometime next week.
I haven't even taken any proper photos of this one yet, just this rather blurry edged scan ;o)
She doesn't as of yet have a name either lol
This one is called Dreaming and is painted on a 12x12 inch canvas board
Well that's me done for this year, my last blog post of 2011 :o)
I will see you guys here again on the 2nd January 2012 when I will put up info on the mail art swap and a linky button to my email address!!
Happy New Year to you all x
