New Year • New Goals

     HAPPY 2018!     

The beginning of each new year prompts me to re-evaluate and determine a plan for the rest of the year. Blogging has never been high on my list, yet it always IS on my list. 

This year I am determined to... 

  1. blog more than a couple of times! 
  2. have fun by talking about things I love.
  3. relieve some of the pressure by changing my attitude;
    not every blog post has to be a masterpiece.
  4. drop the "have to promote all the time" feeling.
  5. and last, map out a schedule!
This is a good start to my new year of blogging...
short, simple, and to the point.


This post and declaration of determination is dedicated to my mother!

CAUTION! Forcing Creativity Shows in Your Work

   (a quote from me)


That's a reminder to myself!

Some things aren't planned, 
they just happen! 

That's often the way I feel while working on a watercolor painting...
What will happen, happens. It's so much more enjoyable when I paint with the right attitude. 

Look at my fabulous volunteer pumpkins!
I didn't plan those, they just popped up in my backyard and I let them happen.


Find your inspiration!

Inspiration can be found almost anywhere. I love finding those interesting scenes that trigger my enthusiasm to get out my paints and start creating.
