Stepping Away

Maybe like me, you’ve had a busy year. My year has been busy, hamster-treadmill, busy.

Last Sunday, when the first candle of Advent was lit, more than ever, I found myself feeling its allure to slow down and reflect. Something I used to do continually, something I hardly do at all anymore. I miss it.

As I’m experiencing the need to clean my inner room and prepare on all levels, this will be my last post until after the New Year. I anticipate announcing some changes and new directions early 2014.

For anyone looking for a Holiday Project, here is one, lost in the archives from Dec. 17, 2010. Christmas Poinsettia. It is in watercolor and shows sucessive steps of negative painting. A wonderful process of mostly layered background painting , until as if by magic, the subject appears. Would be interesting to see it in alcohol inks 🙂

Thanks to all for following this blog. I appreciate you. Wishing all the best this Holiday Season and the coming New Year.
