In Summers' Gold (unfinished)
16"x16" oil on stretched linen canvas
"To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe."
- Anatole France
Honestly, I have been painting now & then, but not quite making it to the computer to blog a single thought about it. And the funny thing is, it seems I get quite introspective about my work in December. December brings the culmination of a year of work, and I always take a broad look at how things have developed over the past year AND consider what I'd like to achieve in the coming year. The studies and workshops that I've completed add to the sorting out. I find the best way to put this new knowledge to use is to just keep painting. This piece will be my bridge to the new year. I'll be spending time in the company of lots of relatives, and I hope to finish wrapping, packing, preparing, etc. for the holidays in the next few days! So, it seems I'm leaving you with a 'cliff-hanger', an un-finished painting, which you'll get to see the end result in the new year!
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to you, and my best wishes for health and happiness in the New Year!!
