Happy New Year!!!

The month of December flew on by as it always does and this one even more so with family in town to celebrate with us this year. Today is the first lazy day on my own to catch up on my favorite art blogs and ponder the year gone by online.
Last year there were several "daily" projects that I followed with interest such as Carole's lovely circle journal  http://carolereidartist.blogspot.ca/ and Mano's wonderful box series http://manoswelt.blogspot.ca/. I do admire such tenacity in others and considered adopting the concept. Ha, Ha, this from a person who almost needs a sign on the bathroom mirror to remember daily tooth brushing. So then I started wondering what kind of "resolutions" I would like to aspire to in the upcoming year.
The year ending was a marvelous time of change and new beginnings for me. I had some much needed rest and nest time which makes my apartment feel more like a home and my studio more workable so I was able to explore a wide variety of artistic endeavors. I learned new things, visited interesting places... I really feel that it was a time of rapid growth and expansion.  So this year I'd like to do...MORE! Yes, more please. I've really only just begun.
Starting off my launch into 2013 with two pieces from the Hand Made Home series.

8 x 22 Encaustic on Board - Home  Sweet Home

Another Cup of Tea - Encaustic (and teabag)  on Cradle-board 6x6 inches
