Happy Moo Year!!

Baby Blue
8 x 10
49.00
I totally did this one just for fun.  In fact, I painted over a painting that I didn't really like, so its kind of a two for one.
I love the new year.  I get a feeling of renewed ambitions, a fresh start,
and looking forward to all the possibilities.
I have decided to make a few "resolutions"....more like "intentions"
I intend to meditate every day.
I have been meditating often, but not every day.
I intend to go outside every day.
When I'm painting, or working on a commission, the entire day, or several in a row,
can go buy without me even venturing out.
I intend to keep a gratitude journal for the year.
I have done for a month, and it really helps you look for things to be grateful for.
 
What do intend for 2013?
Feel free to leave a comment.

Nicole and Kam's Wings of Love

I just realized that I never posted a picture of my niece's and nephew-in-law's wedding gift.

I painted a large pair if wings (24x36) I included parts of their wedding invitation, photos from their childhoods, map of places they were going on their honeymoon, and love songs including some from their wedding. The centre heart was part of their wedding decorations.

A commission

This painting of a family at the cabin toll me a looong time to paint. Seven grandchildren by the fire......with grandma and grandpa, and moms and dads on the deck. I put in a lot of late nights getting it done on time! My fault, totally!!! New Years resolution - Stop procrastinating....I was going to stop last year, but I didn't!!

Abstract thoughts.......

Ive been working on a commission and sometimes I get a little frustrated so I thought I would
do a "Creative Warm-Up"  You know, just to loosen up a bit. 
I have this little rock that I keep in my pocket or on my table where I paint,
and when I look at it, it inspires me on many levels.
I think about all the things I am grateful for - my family,
my art career, my friends, my lovely home, the Internet, and more.
I love looking at it's calming colors and there are little bits embedded in it too.
I guess you could call in my touch-stone.
 
This painting is inspired by my little stone.
