Sending you all best wishes
for a happy, healthy, and safe New Year!
My goal in 2017
is to continue to paint as often as possible,
and only for the pure joy of doing it.
8 x 8 oil on mounted carton board
(study for larger work)
(A gouache study of same subject
done while in Gloucester)
It's been liberating to allow myself
to experiment and discover new ideas,
without the pressure of painting for a show, or a gallery,
or to please someone else.
The good ones will find homes eventually,
and I can't believe it took me this long to realize that.
