The resolution for 2015 was to re-activate my art career. Let's face it though, in temperate zones like where I live, you're so busy strong shoveling the snow out of your path for the first few months of the year that most of us don't get to tackle our resolutions until early spring. That was the case with me.

There was something about the newness of spring that got me going. Flowers are so inspiring in shape, color, texture and scent. At first I started buying bouquets and then as soon as it was warm enough, I went out into the garden. I love my outdoor studio. Now as the sabbat Lammas approaches (more on that soon) and we're heading into a month with a blue moon, I'm about to head outside in a few minutes for another painting session. I'm glad to say though, I'm painting much more than once in a blue moon.
Resolutions are a public declaration. With my resolution I'm saying: I'm going to do this thing this year and I'm going to stick to it. I'm finding my resolutions to be complicated, time-staking but well worth the effort. My newest development in my art career--well, it's huge! Stay tuned for a very special announcement about it in the coming days.
