Light a Path to a Happy & Creative 2008

This is the time of year for new resolutions, but I prefer to think about which direction I want my creative self to travel. Are there new mediums & techniques I haven't tried yet or maybe old techniques just need to be revisited in a new way. My brochure is here for the Society of Decorative Painters convention held in May... do I want to try new techniques & teachers or do I want to further challenge and refine my knowledge in my current painting mediums?

Do I want to teach more classes this year? (of course!!) And what do I want them to learn?

This past year resulted in traveling down some very different creative paths. At the beginning of this past year, who knew I would have my artwork hanging in a fine art gallery in downtown Orlando? Didn't see that one coming at all but it was a direct result from challenging myself to follow a path never before attempted. For that matter, who knew I would start a blog and put forth my art for all the world to see?

My creative path is illuminated by many sources, but just a few are... very creative friends willing to generously share their time and ideas, the many and varied creative publications we have accessible in today's market, and so many creative blogs that provide so much inspiration... all have been invaluable.

Where does your creative path lead you?

Wishing you a Happy New Year and a richly creative journey.
