Have you used this time of reflection and intention each year in your art pursuits? I am encouraging all of you to set aside time to really contemplate what it is you want to do with your creative juices, how you want to use them, what you would like to experience and achieve in your creative world. Where do you want to travel creatively and who will be with you, or do you wish for a solitary journey?
I start the New Year in a new studio in Halfmoon Bay BC, large and bright, with a beautiful view of the water and space to explore all my ideas and passions. I am also fortunate to have a new studio in Palm Desert, my winter home, where I can do the same. I look forward to the year ahead and will keep you posted on my own explorations!
The message given me at the end of the Mayan Calendar, while on retreat at Teotihuacan Mexico, was that we are entering an era of Love and Creation. I share this message with all of you and encourage you to find both within yourselves. My painting "Dawning" was inspired by Sunrise over the Pyramid of the Sun on the first day of the new era, Dec. 2012 - Teotihuacon Mexico.
Please let me know how you are doing as well, I look forward to hearing from you all.
