FAREWELL TO 2013


Wintertide
Acrylic on 48"H x 30"W x 1.5" wrap canvas
Available from Web Gallery: HERE


Painted back in January of 2013 this one was inspired by  a wintry snowy day in the Midwest.  It's one of the few verticals as I usually feel more comfortable working horizontally.  I would like to stretch myself a bit and work a few more verticals into my inventory.  

As the end of the year and a new year approaches resolutions and goals for 2014 are being made.  I try and keep mine simple as #1 i'll forget and #2 i'm really not a goal setter. Just ask my kids and they will tell you mom's philosophy is "it'll all work out".  However it has been helpful to me go back and study what was produced over this last year in a time of reflecting.

Here are some goals:

*work more specifically with large canvases
*continue experimenting with new developments in style
*phase out of the small abstracts
*take floral abstracts in a new direction
*incorporate figures into abstracts
*draw more

How about yours?!

Cheers to a New Year….

God Bless.
