It's hard to find time to get to paint during the rush of the holidays! Yesterday, I spent six hours at my studio going through and organizing photos for future paintings. I ought to be off to a good start of averaging one painting a week in 2011!
Here are a couple of quotes to start off the new year:
"Success doesn't come with painting one picture. It is building step by step against great odds." Georgia O'Keefe
It's how you find, every day, joy in expressing what you think and feel, as you try to create that most magical of things - a work of art.
"The true use of art is, first, to cultivate the artist's own spiritual nature - No artist need fear that his work will not find sympathy if only he works earnestly and lovingly." George Inness (1825-1894)
Here's one of my pastels that was sold to a very special friend.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all!
