I’m taking a little time to get my house (and garden) in order. Literally. My Etsy art shop will be staying open (although I will be on holiday for a couple of weeks later this month). I’ll be back before you know it.

THE Smallest Painting

Painted art brooch, snow on mountains, NZ landscape
Snowy mountain art brooch, approx. 2 x 2.5 inches, 2022.

This snowy New Zealand mountain scene was my last painting for 2022. It is also an art brooch and THE smallest painting I’ve ever tackled. I was commissioned to paint it last month as a Christmas present. The artist and the recipient are both very happy with the result.

original haiku and colourful digital abstract art by Anna Cull

There’s always so much going on… so much to see and do. The demands for my attention seem to grow exponentially with every passing year. Meanwhile I’m working on several new songs, two old paintings, and the posts in my WordPress Reader are starting to pile up again. Somehow “everyone else” seems to be getting out there and doing more, achieving more, being more. But perception is a funny thing and is not to be trusted. NOT to be trusted. So I’m keeping my goal simple this year ~ not that I have ever been one for making new year’s resolutions ~ but the word found itself, quite unbidden, into my first haiku of 2023 and I ran with it. Here’s to an excellent year of doing the one thing we can all do better than anyone else ~ as it says in the song, why don’t you be you and I’ll be me?
