New Year Cat pretty gray cat blue green pattern

New Year Cat  Original oil on wood  6" x 6"  SOLD
I believe in goal making at the beginning of each year!  As one year ends and another begins it's important to note what is working and what is not--especially for artists.   This blog continues to be an absolute joy to create and maintain.   Your comments, direct emails, Tweets and FB "likes" are so very appreciated.  We're fortunate to live in an age that makes sharing art, information and inspiration so easy.  I painted 129 new paintings last year...  This year I want to paint more than that...  and I'd like for at least 20 paintings to be 12x12 or bigger.  I have a few more goals this year but painting more and bigger is my most serious challenge and it is best shared.  Thank you for visiting my blog and for receiving my posts in your email.  Happy New Year!
