Before I start this post--OWOH--amazing!! I wish this wasn't the last year--I am blown away by all the countless numbers of creative people that are out there, that I never would have met--amazing!! And I thank everyone for visiting me. If you want to go to my OWOH post, it's directly below this one or it's at the top of my sidebar.
Okay--now--the first reason why I'm happy! I get to play with my papers that I painted all last month. Now that it's February, I start thinking about making pieces for my art shows this year. I made a decision to cut back on my shows, so my first one won't be until the summer, which I'm very happy about. Now I can take time to create art as opposed to feeling like I have to produce it in numbers--you know, just enjoying the process of art-making.
And I have so many papers in different colors, I wasn't sure which ones to use. So I decided to go with colors that I normally don't use.
Deep Blues, Magenta, Deep Greens, and Golds--although the gold or yellow ochre I use ALL the time--I just love the way these turned out!
And I still have a whole bunch of papers left too!!
