Happy Season/Solstice!

Well, it’s December, Winter Solstice time and the Christmas Season, and my life got a little older last week.  Yes, it was my birthday Friday, a milestone.   But a lady never reveals her age, and neither will I.   Although what I’d like to express is my thanks and gratitude to have been given many gifts, and I’m happy to be here and to be doing okay.  As they say, this is the season to rejoice. 

For this week, my plan is to be jolly, sing some carols and decorate my home.  I will put up a four foot alpine tree and decorate it with my unique, and artisan made small ornaments and miniature lights.  Many other places in my home will be transformed with some cherished Christmas items.  This act always feels like a very crafty task and it’s great to see the tree lit-up and decorations.  It truly puts me in a wonderful and artsy space.

Last week I organizing my art and with good intentions I managed to get some work done.  As I wrote about before, my plan was to move forward with and maybe finish off a watercolor piece.   But, life drew me away from that and the best-laid plans of mice and men went awry?   What I did was dedicate myself to housekeeping on my website, partake in much creative discussion and do some research.   A to-do list to work on the watercolor, and now to contemplate a new acrylic piece is moved ahead.

I’ll sign off for now.  Stay Artsy, Fartsy and have a Happy Season/Solstice!!

Merry Season and Winter Solstice!

Well, it’s the “silly season” again, when it gets crazy everywhere.  I jest; really Christmas can be a wonderful time of the year.  But, I think everyone should just take a deep breath and enjoy it.  I myself, don’t decorate until the second week of December and keep it up until the New Year.  So, that’s what I’ll be doing next week and this week I formulate my plan of action.

Regarding my artwork there’s a couple of things I’m working on.  I want to look again at a little landscape watercolor I’ve been doing, as I’m not sure about it.  It was a good exercise which I might just chalk up to experimentation?   Also, I want to finish up another watercolor of my friends aged cat who is just a gem.  I’ll try to post it afterwards.

Who knows how much artwork I’ll get done, though?  What with gifts to be bought, decorating to put up and baking to do.  Also, as we get into Christmas the days get shorter.  Maybe, we should just hibernate like the bears?

Consequently, if my artwork suffers, I’ll chill and enjoy the season.  You too, please!  Merry Season and Winter Solstice!  I’ll write again soon.
