Winter Sunset and A New Year!

winter sunset over the reservoir, 12/30/10

I took this photo yesterday at the walk trail. It was my first time there since the blizzard. I was happy that the sun had melted enough snow so that I could walk across the bridge to be near the water. It was so quiet and peaceful. And I couldn't help but think about how important creativity has become for me.

When I look back on 2010 I will always remember it as the year I began my art journey. In February when I picked up a paint brush for the first time I had no idea how far I would go, how much I would learn, and how many great people I would meet!

I am thankful for each and everyone of you who have warmly welcomed me into this creative blogging world! My art has begun to take on a life of its own. I am excited to see where goes next! And I am so happy to have you all to share in this journey with me!

As the sun sets on this day I wish you all good health, happiness and much love for the New Year!!
