Happy New Year to you dear friends!  I love starting the new year with a clean slate.  Writing goals, cleaning out drawers, throwing junk away and so forth.  Do you do this?  It makes me feel so good.  I actually went to Costco yesterday and saw this book, The life-changing magic of tiding up-the Japanese art of decluttering and organizing by Marie Kondo.  Well I had to buy it!  What better way to start the year.  I can’t wait to read it and watch my life change……not….but maybe!  Think about joining me on this adventure.

I will be starting my daily painting again for 2016 beginning today…it will be late tonight when I post.  This year I get to start on day 1 of 2016.  Please help encourage me…I will need all the help I can get.  They will be 6×6 paintings on 8×8 paper.  I am trying to simplify this time.  These will be affordable original paintings.  Join me want you?  You can receive a daily email to your inbox by signing up here.

Best days to you
