Welcome the Twenties

I’m really not one for New Year’s resolutions but given that this year is a bit of a big deal (and I love the sound of living in the Twenties), I have written down a few New Year’s intentions ~ the sorts of things I want to focus on and how I want to fill my days, encouraging me to find and create “more faith, more health, more art, more music, more… ” 🏡

The image above is an old one that I’ve edited slightly ~ originally created in Bryce almost 20 years ago (2002). It suits my current mood.

A new year drifts in,
Bright with possibilities;
Welcome the Twenties.

Another year over…

Bamford (private commission) – acrylic on canvas, 150 x 305 mm, 2015

This small canvas was my last commission of 2015 ~ and it was a wonderful way to end the year. When I was asked to paint this version of my little stick figure illustration, I had no idea how it would look (given that the original figures were ink drawings on paper). I needn’t have worried. This painting now has pride of place on my new Commissions page.

Wishing everyone a happy and creative 2016 : )
