Seasonal Sketches



Something seasonal for the Christmas countdown. Later today I will have to tidy away the art supplies in order to rediscover the dining table - which I keep 'for best'. I mean there's no point using it to eat on every day is there? It just won't feel special when we do.... That's my excuse for covering it with an art supplies mountain and I'm sticking to it.

In 2013 I intend to sell lots of art to fund operation 'we're going to need a bigger house'. Lately just getting through the door has become a piece of performance art in itself.

It's good to state ambitious intentions. Yesterday I took delivery of The Icarus Deception a very exciting new book by Seth Godin. He challenges the cosy old rules of comfort zones and compliance and reminds us that we all have the wings we need to soar. It's about bravery, adventure and creativity. I'm in.

Sharing today for Sunday Sketches. Pop on over and see what the gang are up to!

  8. Well I've had a great time here this morning!
    Congrats on selling 3 LARGE and vibrant works of art!!! I laughed out loud at the previous post...I think we are cosmic twins. And I think we were just born too late to be diagnosed with ADD. It's a struggle to complete anything, always a new 'brilliant' idea popping up.
    Merry Christmas to my funny, sweet, creative friend♥♥♥
