I have great hope for 2009. Hope for this country, for my family and loved ones, for us all.
A good friend and I shared lunch today and talked of how as we are aging, we are not as willing to accept people or situations that are unpleasant to us anymore. We hold our tongues more and let others make their own choices. We are learning to just be still and find some inner peace.
Here's hoping that 2009 brings to all of us more creativity, love, and peace.

This year has brought me many blessing, and one is my friend Lynda. She not only shared a lot of her art with me, but shared techniques, ideas, day trips, and laughter. Her ideas spurred me on in many directions and for that I am grateful.
I think we have all been blessed this year with so many wonderful publications from artists like Kelly Rae Roberts and Susan Tuttle, among others, who have shared so much of themselves and their processes. And most of all, I am so grateful that there are so many artists who share their insights, art and so much of themselves in their blogs.
Merry Christmas Everyone!

With the artist board, it was easier to add embellishments and to stamp. The photo doesn't show very well, but the skirt is gathered in tulle, and the dress is partially painted and part magazine pieces. So much easier to be creative with the board.
