New Year, New Beginnings

Double Vision         29" x 36"       


I'm happy to say that with the new year I've started a few new things! Here's my first painting of the year. It was inspired (of all things) by an area rug we recently bought. I just fell in love with it and I wanted to paint something to go with it after we added it to the room. Plus I think it ties everything in the room together now. ;)

Here's the rug that inspired the painting:


Of course I still like the rug better than the painting but I think the two go together well.  ;)

Other news: I have a website now! If you look at the top right-hand column you will see the link to it. (It's my Warhol painting). That will take you to my website. It's in the beginning stages but I have plans to expand that this year. 

And this is my first entry for Paint Party Friday this year. Be sure to check it out. They never disappoint! 

I'm glad to say goodbye to 2012. Here's hoping that 2013 will be a better one for you as well! Hugs to all of you. I've been very bad about visiting blogs and promise to do better from here on out. Thank you for all who have stuck with me. I truly appreciate your notes and friendship!!

It's so good to see a new painting by you. I love it! I've realized during the past few months that I really enjoy abstract art. I wonder what that says about our brains?
