Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a good night bringing in 2013- I love the fresh start a brand new year promises. I have a lot of intentions, as I always do. I want to cultivate a more positive attitute-  I am going paint 30 pieces of gratitude. I am joining in on a "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge put out there by Leslie Saeta. Lots of folks are doing this.

I made a special folio from a gift  box to hold the papers- all index card size. It will be fun to try some new techniques- fluid acrylics, watercolor, and collage. I plan to do these in my house at the kitchen counter- a place I used to love to paint when my kids were home.



In other news!-Girls Just Wanna Paint monthly post is up- our challenge for December was
 Paint like Matisse! 

Here's mine- 6''x6" oil on panel.
This is Tamburina, Matisses cat.

Good for you, Sally. I am doing it also or at least trying. I'm not quite as on top of it as you are...more thinking needed.
