"The whole world, as we experience it visually, comes to us through the mystic realm of color."
- Hans Hofmann
I. Am. So. Looking forward to what this year has to offer. There's a sweet feeling in the air, a crisp determination, a warm fuzzy that you get in the pit of your stomach when you know something good is coming . . . I don't know how to explain it better than that, but I'm grateful to start this new year full of promise, possibilities . . . and color . . . .
Wanna know what I'm doing?
I'm starting the year on a beautiful note with Life Book. The community and camaraderie over there is amazing and I'm eager to begin the year's worth of insights and education by Tam and 15 other guest artists. I'll be there all year, and will be sharing most of what I do there with you here as well.
I'm looking forward to this year's new Our World Our Art, the next installment of the former One World One Heart focusing on art and artists. It's gonna be a great party, which usually begins in January . . . .
I'll be participating in Paint Party Friday and Sunday Postcard Art as often as possible. The weekly check-in's and communication with other artists are incredibly inspiring and so much fun.
Speaking of color, I am thrilled to be hosting another installment of The Summer of Color! This year's theme, Ice Cream Inspirations should prove to be cool and colorful . . . .
Of course, there may be other possibilities to play that I don't yet know of. I promise to take every opportunity that brings me closer to another goal of mine this year: To make something of my art. Professionally. There, I said it (gulp). . . .
And on a personal note, I am optimistic that this will be the year of babies. I want one. Still. And I'm eager to see if 2012 brings the baby that we so desperately want here in our home.
Having said that, I'd like to share with you a recent (gorgeous, sweet and loving) addition that makes "baby" on the forefront of my mind right now: Kendra's new puppy!
Brand new baby girl!
How sweet is she? We lost our family dog last year and this little one is just what we needed to bring a little light and energy back into our home. She's the first puppy Kendra and I have ever had, and I have to say, we're already in love!
So here's to new babies, new art, new adventures and a whole lot of color. I look forward to sharing it with you all . . . .
