A Very Happy New Year to You

It is a snowy, sub-zero day here in Minnesota as I write my last blog for 2013! I am "near speechless" at the speed which this year has zoomed by. Although it seems traditional to reflect on all the year's accomplishments and happenings, my mind wants to fast forward and ponder all that is to come in the new year. The possibilities of 2014 are exciting and bring a smile to my face. With a new website and catalog in place, a great staff in the shop, and a long list of "paintings waiting to happen," there is an air of thrill and excitement in my bones as I type!

In the new year ahead, I wish the same for each and every one of you, as I wish for myself...peace and happiness and the will to make the world a better place because of our contributions. To lend a helping hand where and when we can, to feel purpose and joy in the days that we live and to be tough for all the tough things that can unexpectedly happen. I wish you love and a warm, happy home to share with the people you care about. Happy New Year everyone, and as Tiny Tim once said, "God Bless us Everyone!"

I would also like to say thank you for sharing in my journey as an artist. Thank you for the encouraging words, and your support of my work - you bring purpose and meaning to it. I am blessed because of you!

Thanks for reading  - See you next year....
