It’s a New Year’s gift to me! What a thrill this morning to see my name in print on one of my favourite artist resource sites, Empty Easel. In the past I was a contributing writer on the site, and I had no expectations of ever being featured in one of their weekly artist profiles. Thank you, Empty Easel!

Stuff I’ve been working on lately.

Happy New Year to you! As I mentioned in my “Highlights of 2013” post, I’ve got lots of anticipation and drive going into 2014. My biggest artistic goal is just to paint, paint and paint some more. I am very conscious of where my weaknesses lie, and they will be conquered through practice. This will be my twentieth year as a watercolour painter, but just like a beginner, it is through practice that growth happens.

I have a few other goals: to create a second online watercolour course, to regularly add to my YouTube video channel (I’d love to do a weekly mini-painting demo) and to paint towards a 2015 calendar. Can’t wait to get started, and that means today!
