Seemed appropriate to start the year with a painting of growth.
So, what are the plans? To get better, to learn, as always.
To meet new people and talk to old friends more.
To visit new places (like maybe Italy) and old places (Paris and up the west coast).
To enter more competitions - which means ones in London. This may well also mean more visits down there.
Paintings wise currently I am passionate about landscapes, both rural and urban, although I do plan on painting people again soon. Some of these will be tronies as previously, but some may will be more complex works. Flowers may also be working their way onto my paintings, since the Yellow Roses were such fun to paint.
This should be the year I move into a studio - which will mean some big changes in the way I work.
Last year opened up the possibilities so I expect this one will be full of development rather than exploring new avenues. But then, things happen, so who knows?
Happy new year to all of you, hope it is a good one, and would love to hear your plans - there does seem to be a special kind of magic in writing it all down for everyone to read!
