I count my blessings for my friendships. I have developed wonderful new friendships through this art club on line. My friends from DAWG group have brought me much joy and companionship in the past year. I enjoy my time with every one, and hope all the members of DAWG all the best in 2009.
I count my blessings for my art. I am truly fortunate to be able to pursue what I love to do. I believe that I have grown as an artist in 2008. I hope to see more creative development and learn new techniques in the upcoming year. I love to start a piece with little planning and discover what might develop as I progress with the painting. It can make a very fresh and creative atmosphere, even if the painting itself doesn't turn out, it generates tons of new ideas. I enter 2009 with this same logic. I have no set plans for the upcoming year, I am not an organized or structured person. The ability to gracefully navigate the world with all of it's chaos is an art, just as my painting is. I welcome 2009 with open arms. With help from my family and friends I will navigate my little part of the world just fine. I wish you all a very blessed, healthy 2009.

Naturally, all sorts of childhood memories have popped up. Christmas Eve meant a big family gathering with all sorts of foods and goodies.
Vigilia was always at my Godmother's home and I remember quite a few where the snow was so deep we wondered if we'd make it.
This year, we'll get together here...the drive is shoveled but the snow is falling, again!
The kids will open a few presents; I love to watch their faces!
We'll join a few far away family members on the phone.

It is done entirely with a palette knife and no brush. It is signed and comes with COA( certificate of authenticity).
I gave my red poinsettia painting away and I like doing that so I thought I would start the new year off by giving a painting away every so often. If you are an artist you know we create a lot of paintings. Anyway, you must email me and give me your name and email address to qualify.

How is you shopping coming along? I really need to finish mine.

I haven't had much time to do any new art but have found a fun place that anyone can try their ideas.
It is called ZAZZLE; there you can upload images for mugs, calendars, greeting cards, postcards, T shirts and more. I have been having fun with bumper stickers.
Today we live in a era where everyone wants to celebrate Christmas, but it is not politically correct to say Merry Christmas. Strange, I know!
At Zazzle.com I have sold several of my bumper stickers to people like me, who are NOT afraid to say Merry Christmas.
You can visit my Zazzle shop and see what I have created thus so far. I will be adding more and more as time permits, but don't forget to visit my shop and leave a comment there too.
You might want to open your own shop there, after all it's FREE!
Thanks4lookin and did I say..... MERRY CHRISTMAS!
