Happy New Year

Click to Bid
I've never made a New Year's resolution that I didn't abandon soon after but I do view the beginning of the year as a blank canvas so to speak. Along these lines I plan to broaden my horizons by teaching classes in my studio starting in May when I return from Naples. Teaching is a mutually satisfying exchange in which the teacher learns from the students and I can't wait to get started!! I'll post more info on that later. I also plan to spice up my blog with links I've been collecting to the many artists I admire out there in cyberspace. Today's link, which is also on my sidebar, is to Artists Helping Artists a talk radio show by artists Leslie Saeta and Dreama Tolle Perry. If you can't listen live on Thursdays all of the shows are archived and you can listen while you paint or browse the blogs. This blog has done much more than I could have have imagined when I started it. It keeps me focused and my work has improved consistently. I have to thank all of you who follow and comment and encouragement me. You make my day! Happy New Year!

So exciting, a new year! I look forward to seeing the links you post. I also love the Artists Helping Artists show and listen often. I love the redbird painting and plan to so some bird paintings myself this year. I am encouraged by fellow artists like you and thank you for that!

Hi Mary - thank you for your visit to my blog, and I'm glad you did, as it allowed me to find yours :).

This painting of the male cardinal hopping around in the bare branches of a tree or shrub is, to me, one of the hallmarks of winter in New England - I saw that scene surprisingly often when I was living in CT.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Mary!

I was just thinking that the new year is like a blank canvas too, this morning, getting up and getting ready to move, I'm like frozen in place. It's that blank canvas.

Good luck with the teaching, you will have so much fun sharing with those that want to know!
