I have been desperate to pick up my brushes and do something, anything since Thanksgiving. I believe I have cooked the last meal for the holiday season last night! Phew! Now that family and friends have retreated for the moment I am back in my studio but with just enough creative energy to play with little bits of color on little bits of paper. I am glad even this meager display of unction was a result of my resolve encouraged and supported by this page and this yearly activity that may or may not keep me going every day but definitely gets my butt in gear again for the new year. I have lots of paintings to complete from a summer of plein air attempts. So most likely that will be my first main focus. For now though I will get my creative spirit re- lit by playing with water and color.
