HNY 2012!

my painting based on the Miro Exercise - from Drawing Lab
 I've taken some time off from the electronic devices in my life! I liked it but I realize now I've missed them too! I had a wonderful holiday break and today is the last day, I can't believe I am saying this but I'm looking forward to getting back to work. We all need a break and I am going to promise myself that I will take proper vacations this year, rather than a day here, and a day there. I also didn't do a lick of work which is another big plus for me. I usually sneak and check in.
I was able to purchase a TERRIFIC book by Carla Sonheim with a gift card I received this Christmas from my parents. So far I have done two exercises. The book contains 52 projects. The other was a Modigliani. I just a random girl design. I like how she came out. I don't like to do portraits so much as I have a hard time with likenesses.
We had a good new year and it was a quiet one, for sure! I was in my glory just sitting back and painting while the boys played games and watched movies. We ended the night off by watching THOR and stopping the movie in time to ring in the new year! Below is my journal page that I created NYE.

Counting Down to '12

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy year this year and find peace for themselves. The only thing that I hope for myself is that I continue to stay creative. That's my fuel to keep on keepin' on.
Happy New Year!

Fran, your journal page and portrait are amazing!! i love your style... I'm slowly getting back to blogging (i've missed you all!) and like you, i'm somewhat relieved to be getting back to work. Or at least more of a routine & less eating. :-)
Happy New Year!! xoxo

Hi There Pauline, I know I'm slow going too:) Thanks so much for your comments! I am going to pop out now to see some blogs and will stop over to you. Enjoy your weekend. Gosh it was the longest week this week - always that way when I have a four-day work week, funny.
