It’s officially a new year and I’m starting off with some winter scenes and a few winter birds. I have some bird feeders outside my kitchen window and I’ve had quite a few visitors, especially cardinals this week when the feeders were refilled. I have been making an effort to put in time daily to paint even if it’s for a short time and looking forward to a new year of growth.
This time of year after the holidays is always hard for me and by keeping my daily practice up I am keeping busy even if I’m tired. I do look forward to treating myself to some new art supplies after the holidays as a way to kick start something new. My next project will be some gouache sketches and more portraits.
