Out with the Old in with the New

"Scene 2" mixed media 4" x 5"
  I had one art goal for this year and that was to get my art published. I had submitted three pieces of art to a magazine back in February. They still have the art and the return money, and I haven't heard a word...mmm, maybe I better check on that. But just before the clock struck 12 I got a call that my art will be on the cover of the Boise Weekly sometime this month! So even though it's now "next year" I'll let it count.

The big art things for me this year were attending Art Fest in Port Townsend, WA. Teaching painting at the Wine and Chocolate Festival in Texas, participating in and being named a semi-finalist in RAW. Acceptance in and attending the World Bicycle Relief Event in New York City. 

I have greatly enjoyed our weekly studio sessions at "Studio M" It's great hanging out and creating with other artists. Sharing ideas, getting feedback etc. Thank you Marianne.

On a personal level my bigest accomplishment this year was entering my first two mountain bike races and qualifying for nationals!

So, now the next question...What's on the plate for 2013?

I am working on a big bicycle commission and see more "bike art" in my future.

I  also plan to start teaching from my home studio. First workshop tentative date is January 31 time TBA. $50, 2 hours collage/assemblage project.

While I don't have a new goal for this year, yet. I did write a recipe for myself:

Every Day:
enjoy nature
eat sensibly
do something creative
spend time with a loved one
