Happy New Year (2013) to Family and Friends!
I wrote an acrostic of what I thought this coming year should be like for me. Although I haven’t been active in writing on my blog this year; it is my hope to challenge myself to write and create more. Both mediums are very therapeutic to me and balance my life out.
This painting “Weathered” was created a few months ago. The idea was taken at an antique show in Massachusetts. I was drawn to this setup because of my love for the garden, the ocean and antique accents. The colors that attracted me to this picture gave me a sense of what has been used in the past, but is very welcomed, for some, in our lives today. Most of us cherish aged pieces from the past; it gives us comfort and can remind us of situations or people who were once in our lives, (warm fuzzies). In most instances I can’t agree with the saying “Out with the Old and In with the New”. Some things have emotional ties, maybe an attachment to the past, or just a warm memory you’ve created yourself. It is all in the hands of the individual. So, I will end this with my creative writing piece, enjoy the New Year with lots of love, health and happiness!
