What's Next

First week of the new year and starting to wind down. Today we celebrated my grandson's first birthday. Great party but a little windy and chilly. We were outside at a park - one of the perks of living in Florida - you can do that in January but if you plan something for outside, you don't know if it's going to be 35 degrees or 85 degrees. You just have to wait and see what happens.

Anyway.... that was the last get together for these 2 holiday weeks and it's time to get back to painting. Tomorrow I head back to the studio to continue working on the Macon show. This is a Georgia landscape in progress. I still have some layering to do and might be adding some more gold leaf. It has lots of texture so I want to play that up a bit more.

And... look what came in the mail yesterday thanks to an Amazon gift card I got for my birthday. SQUEEE...I'm SO EXCITED! Here's someone else who loves to play with gold leaf like I do. Can't wait to go through it an find some new techniques to try. I'll let you know what I find.

Hope you had a fun New Year's celebration and here's to 2014 - may it be filled with family, fun, good health, prosperity and oodles of painting time :)
