NEW YEAR: NEW PLANS

When I was looking for a photo to post today, I came across this photo of the interior of a really nice hotel in Santa Fe. It seems fitting for today. Another year! A light of hope! New plans! New dreams! New ideas! New goals! A new chance to start over!
Well, let's start with new plans - I have set a big challenge for myself for my new show in June!
The show details are below.
My dreams for 2009 are to get in shape (this has many sub-goals), travel and spend more with my husband, have a big organic garden, begin a yoga practice, meditate every day, do more plein air painting trips, make some art videos, and help my two daughters to realize their dreams. I also want to meet more people who enjoy my art and just have more fun. Be spontaneous! I think the older we get, the more we forget how to just relax and enjoy being alive. I think all of my goals are realistic and very achievable.
Workwise: I have four commissions to paint and finish in the next two weeks - Dancers, Cosmos Field, Morning Glories, and the Taos Church.
DAILY PAINTING STARTS TONIGHT!!
I will try to post my paintings in the evening, along with a Paypal button. If you have any requests or ideas, please email them to me, as I'm in the planning stages ....
NEW CHALLENGE - NEW SHOW
My new challenge starts next week for my show in June at Weems Gallery Old Town.
Here it is:
150
150 paintings
150 days
$150
The paintings will range in size from 5x5 to 12x12. I will also paint a few larger sizes: 12x16, 16x20, and have one or two large paintings as well. All for $150 or less! A great time for you to beome a new collector, build up your current collection, or just come to the show to see if I met my challenge!
The show will culminate the first week in June at the Old Town gallery. There will be food, music, a painting giveaway, and more. I may start a new blog for your viewing just to keep track of my 150 paintings. Watch for that....


So, as you can see, there is A LOT of painting in my future. Thank you all for tuning in, keeping me sane, giving me good feedback, purchasing my work, and just being there. It's a great big beautiful world we live in, filled with good people, and I love you all.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
