For a moment of night we have a glimpse of ourselves and of our world islanded in a stream of stars—pilgrims of mortality, voyaging between horizons across the eternal seas of space and time. — Henry Beston

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. Since the start of the year, I’ve been doing art experiments instead of finished pieces, both digital and traditional—pretty much making a mess instead of making something to show off.

This artwork is… well, hey, it’s colorful, so I’m sharing! I love lots of color. I keep trying things in monochrome but I end up adding more colors, alas.

Hope you’ve all been having a good 2015 so far!

First painting of 2015. Not quite sure where I’ll be going with my art this year; I’ve been mixing digital and traditional media and will probably do a little of both, if not continue to combine the two in some way onto canvas.

Spent the end of the year in chilly Minnesota, where much of David’s family lives. Had some snow on arrival, which was wonderful, but the negative temperatures that showed up after that?—yeah, that I could do without. We had a fantastic holiday and ringing-in of the new year. I hope you did too!

The light is what guides you home, the warmth is what keeps you there.

One more artwork before I scurry off for holiday time! I’m going to take a few days mostly offline and enjoy the season with my loved ones.

No matter what you celebrate or what your plans are: I wish you a wonderful end to 2014 and a successful beginning to 2015. Thanks so much for following my blog and encouraging me to create. Much love, my friends!

This one is clearly a doodle, but man, did I have fun doodling. Oh, it’s the holidays—and my artwork right now reflects the cheerful chaos of crowds and shopping and too much going on. Hope the holidays are treating you well!

Created primarily with Pencil by FiftyThree, an early Christmas present from my darling husband, David. I’m really enjoying the Pencil; it’s very comfortable and natural to draw with on the iPad. It’s quickly become my favorite stylus.
