Starting A New Year and the Winter Season

It has been a whirlwind few weeks with the Christmas and New Year holidays for everyone.  I am sure you were all busy doing the usual tasks as well as all the extra's that fall into the schedule.

Now that 2017 is here we can take a deep breath and use our
winter studio time to prepare for upcoming events, try new techniques in painting and try to develop a :game plan" for the new year.
One of the first things I did was to evaluate the art that I currently have on hand, decide if I was satisfied with that work and if not, could I do something else to the piece to make it a better piece.  If not, I tried to learn from the piece
what I could do with the next best painting to have a good result.

I also think it was helpful to catch up on organizing my work space, refining my inventory listings
and removing those things that tend to clutter our space when we get too busy to think about
those things.

I found that after I did some of those things I was actually to enjoy getting the paint out and
did not feel I had to rush  my creative process .  So.....I hope I can maintain the organization a bit better this year so I can really enjoy all the painting opportunities.

Happy New Year and may it be a great year for art!
