Happy New Year!

 Hello fellow bloggers! it's been a long long while since I updated my blog. Been thinking about it lots, but never got around to it and I want to change that and be more consistent. Last year was wonderful in a lot of ways, but art wise, I would call it a failure. After starting the year off strong, I slowed down, until months were going by with barely touching my paints. Near the end of the year, I did a 30 day painting challenge to kick start myself into creating daily, and it worked beautifully!
The above painting I think, was created during that time.

 This year will be about art for me. I haven't chosen a word yet- I know a lot of you like to pick a theme/word for the year, but nothing has come to me yet.
 I think last year's was 'discipline' for me and that obviously didn't work out well, lol!

...So, the problem with letting so much time go by is now Blogger seems awkward....and I am afraid to sign out because I have no idea what my password is :-D
I will also have to  figure out how to change the look of  my blog, and find something that works...oh, I hate that sort of thing! I just want to paint and write and forget all that other stuff!

It will take a bit of time to get re-acquainted with blogging, and to start reading my favorite blogs again, but I am really looking forward to it!
I will leave you with my first painting of 2016.
thanks for reading!
