The end of the year brings the anticipation of a new beginning.  It is thrilling to look to the future and contemplate what will come.  

My art has been neglected (in a sense) due to the holidays, I must say I missed it daily.  The creative time and living in my head are a vital part of my being however,  I was able to (sneak away)  find some very interesting materials for future art.  Now that it is time to begin with a new year, new art and new book project, I feel comfort.  The knowledge that art awaits its' conception is all I need to leave behind the events of 2008 and move into the days to come.

Inspiration, Do you look for it or does it find you?  Let me know how it comes into your life.

Time has slipped through my fingers as I look at the last posting, November 22nd.  The days have been full, preparing for the holidays.  Our traditional Thanksgiving at the beach (Gulf Shores, Al.) was wonderful, beautiful weather, a lot of laughter and good food.  I truly enjoy every minute, my favorite thing to do is play on the beach with my grandchildren.  These are memories I will cherish forever.

December has brought its' swirl of activities.  I have been able to slip in some art among all the craziness.  I found several vintage books and printed pieces.  These will be incorporated into a new collage technique I have been developing.  More to come on that later....

Visited the Frist Art Museum in Nashville to see the Kodak Show.  This was a well designed exhibit, with beautiful images.  

My mind is full of  art to create and many new processes to try.  Now is the time.
