HAPPY NEW YEAR!
To all my blogging friends that come visit me through the year.
As the year comes to a close, I thought of what exactly did I do this past year. Could I have done better? more?
First of course, what did I do for others? Humans and animals. Well, that would be a personal thing.. so let's leave it at that.
I exhibited in the Strawberry Festival at the beginning of the year..
and finished my Alaska journal from my 2013 trip.
How could I forget my trip to Alaska and the Northwest, the year before. Managed to make a quilt, two actually, one for my dear friend..
Also did some Florida series paintings, after all I do live there.
Forum Challenges, and how could I forget the '30 paintings in 30 days Challenge" ?
It took me a month to recover from that .! lol .
A trip or two to Biloxi,.
Then the 4 day workshop that I took in Sept.. over on St. Pete beach.
The memory of that will last and will do another one this year. Same place different instructor .... after a lifetime of painting I finally got to take a class. !
Opened my Etsy shop and working at it to make it a success.
I've gotten a few commissions from it and that's always nice..made a few sales already... that's good too. !!
Letting any unpleasant instances go, and there are always some.
Life is never without those bumps and bruises...My mom had a saying that 'what doesn't happen in a year, happens in a day'.
We never know. So,... I'll put my foot into the New Year and start walking like I've always done.
Thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement for my art, my health, and my life.
