What is it about the New Year that gives us Hope to accomplish new exciting things or to change directions in Life and try something different?
For me, it’s like a point in time that gives us permission to change our routines and explore or experiment with new ideas. And, often this Creative approach produces results that we never would have dreamed possible! How freeing…!
So, I’m back in the studio today…straightening, organizing, and ready to begin new projects…finishing up old ones…dreaming, idea gathering, listening to music, experimenting with materials, playing around with a few ideas. Sometimes it’s difficult to find this place of concentration and flow, but it’s time…
Last Friday was the Studio’s first “Printing Day”, so off to a good start!
It’s neat to be able to create these archival pigment prints, individually printed on wonderful papers, such as Canon’s Pro Luster. It is fun to explore using different kinds of art papers and printing to achieve various effects.
As prints were being created on Friday, we also had another First !!~~The 1st Snow of the Winter! Always beautiful to see through the window as it falls…
As the Winter’s chill sets in~~steaming, whipped cream-topped hot chocolate….cozy, comfy knit sweaters…..warm, crackling fireplaces….
