2014 Here We Come

...hope you're ready!

 There's something just so delicious about a fresh new year, something untainted, pure and full of impossible dreams! I love it! (Besides it gives me the chance to beat on a pot with a spoon creating a terrific racket!)

  It's a little ritual of mine where on New Years Eve I get to enjoy grabbing a pencil and scribbling down my own hopes and dreams for the next 365 days. Twenty-thirteen was lovely & I'm thankful for it, but I have an especially grand feeling about this one!

I can see a few dreams brewing on the horizon I can't wait to lasso & I'm looking forward to sharing them with you!

It's somewhat like an unpainted sketch...

The possibilities to the colors and life that will be brought to it are endless, and there's a sweet hope in that.
Something like this sketch for my most recent painting, when these pencil lines were drawn a few weeks ago I had no boundaries! I'm giddy with Twenty-Fourteen's sketch. 

It even has a nice ring to it! Twenty Hundred and Fourteen. 
Very nice indeed.

Happy New Year to one and all!


  1. A Happy New Year to You, hope your new year is filled with creative light! (That photo is beautiful!! How glamorous they all look.)
