The Magic of Christmas is upon us. Our little historic Florida town is alive with lights in the trees and festivities abound which helps us feel like Christmas even though it’s in the 70’s outside!
It’s also a month of friend’s birthdays, including mine, and of course Christmas. Each year when I am honored with a birthday, I like to reflect on the importance of birthdays and Christmases and how we should make every minute count. This year I realized on my birthday that “Today is the oldest I’ve ever been and the youngest I’ll ever be again”, which emphasizes that we never know how many we have left. We might have a lot and maybe we don’t – but you see – it doesn’t matter, because what is important is NOW.
Each year I like to set goals for myself. This year follows the importance of NOW and creating memories with family and friends. I want to listen more carefully, love more genuinely, and engage with more interest.
For painting goals, I plan to paint more regularly, paint “larger”, finish my online shop, and network more with artist friends internationally to share our art journeys together.
I also want to start painting more paintings associated with holiday seasons. I am starting with this one to share with you, my friends who follow my ramblings. It blends my love of blue and white vases and bowls with the color red of the season. To view this and my available works, check out my portfolio.
This I share with you with blessing for a safe and warm Holiday Season.
