A New Year Has Started

Our back arbor & winter grape vine

Our New Year's eve was spent with friends, feasting on Maine lobster and steak. Our New Year's Day was quiet and reflective, my goals established for 2011, personal and career-wise. I have opened the door on the new year armed with my word for the year."Strong" ..... Strong in mind and health....strong in creativity......strong with friends and family....strong in faith.

I have been out of the studio too long. The holiday was good, but it is time to get back to a daily routine and stick with it. I have grabbed and hour here and there, to find my way to the sanctuary of my studio space, but I have so many commitments and show dates ....These will  need a strong work ethic from me.That word again...."strong".  That being the studio! But not before wishing everyone the best of New Years......and thank you so for your 'strong" support of my art!

The winter shadows and clouds stretch across our Maine farm today.

I admire your focus in life. You seem to be in control of your desire to paint, produce art and know what is really important. I don't know about strength. You seem to already have it. Happy New Year and a productive one. I want to get on track as you are, my inspiration. xo Jenny
