Hi all y’all!
The holidays are here. Soon to say good-bye to 2013.
I have been thinking back on the year. It was a good year for me. I tried to work hard. Be kind. Practice gratitude. My sweet darlin’ aways says that you can only control your own attitude and effort. I tried.
On my vision board from last year I see that NOLA Groundswell is now a non-profit business. That’s it so far. I applied for a few grants, but I think money is a little tight. No grants yet. I do love Maggie’s input…Good Luck, celebrations and love. My word for the year was VISIBLE. I am heading in that direction.
My last painting for 2013 is competed.
I wanted to paint the love between a mother and daughter. I like the words because they can be spoken by either person. I used a few of my favorite icons… the blue bird of happiness, the home, daisies and a sun. I like the fanciful childlike renderings.
I have some Shasta daisies in my front yard that I planted 30 years ago in Sacramento at our first home. Every time we moved I divided a few plants and moved them with us. 5 moves. I think that is why I put daisies in so many of my paintings.
The sky and the sun are tissue paper, decroative paper and paint. The words are chip board that I painted white.
I hope you like it.
I am off to visit the in-laws in California.
Have you been thinking about your 2013? I would love to hear.
In hopeful anticipation of 2014,
