Looking back over the year, here are a few paintings that I completed in 2012:
(The second one is a collage of prints celebrating my favorite color, red).
In July we lost our long time companion of 12 years, Annie:
Overwhelmed with sadness, God blessed us with Grandma's dog, Lady, a few months before we lost Annie to cancer.
Lady's name is truly what it implies. She is part Golden Retriever and part Collie, which makes her a Gollie. Gollie's are so sweet and gentle and she makes very strange noises, which is common for this breed. She has been quite the blessing!
This year we did some remodeling in the kitchen:
Painting these knotty pine cabinets, changing out the hardware, and addinging new light fixtures made a huge difference.
Today I will be taking it easy and watching a little of this before getting back to the drawing table:
If you've never seen this British series, it's available on Netflix. I love it because it's very quirky.
I will also be putting up my feet in my old, fluffy pink slippers....
and having some of this...
Since everyone in blogland seems to be picking a word for 2013, I've decided that mine will be "Dream".
Keep your dreams alive in 2013 and if you don't have any it's time to start. Your God given talents are a good place to start.
Have a blessed and wonderful New Year!
