Happy New Year everyone!

Like many other people at this time of year, I have been reviewing my accomplishments from 2010 and working on setting my goals for 2011.  Last year was a good year for me, and I hope to continue to build on my successes this year.

Although there were many things that I did well, I realized during my annual review that I have fallen behind on sharing new work here. So in my goals I have committed to catching up.

I also realized that I only shared my daily sketches through Day 125, even though I continued the project through Day 181. I probably won't post all of the remaining daily sketches from last year's project, but I will promise to show you some of my favorites.

I also might have a new blog feature or two up my sleeve... but you will have to wait for more news on that.

I'm looking forward to another great year of creating and sharing art. I hope you will join me here.

I painted the watercolor sketch above two days after Christmas. This Santa was a gift from my husband probably 5 or 6 years ago. He is still one of my favorite decorations. I was inspired to be a little looser in my sketching after viewing some of Ronell's magnificient sketches. I love the freshness and feeling of energy she achieves.
