It is said that the older one gets the faster time goes.
Perhaps it's the awareness that the road ahead is undoubtedly shorter than the road already travelled; perhaps it's because there are so many projects still to do; or it’s the realization that there aren't enough days left to accomplish everything.
Then you know that each precious day should be treasured and filled to capacity.
As I look back on 2013, I realize that it's been a busy year - the highlighted words link to the images and blog posts.
Here’s what I've been up to:
- Postcards from Europe - this painting captured special travel memories for my client.
- Testing the Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbook - there's an album of these drawings and paintings here on Flickr.
- A major website re-design was a lot of work but very rewarding.
- Two different portraits were delivered - such fun!
- Exhibiting at The Rotary Art Spectacular - my first time at this prestigious exhibition
- Lethbridge10,000 - I was so pleased to be an artist selected for the gallery exhibition.
- Re-creating a client's Greek holiday memories - and here are the paintings.
- Painting a portrait of a dear Grandson - I would love to do more portraits next year - I still have so much to learn...
- A painting with a difference - Time for Pizza - a painting for a patio with a new pizza oven.
- Art classes were held throughout the year and a number of one day workshops:
Ink and Wash; Composition; Watercolour - New Directions; and Introduction to oils
- And a successful exhibition with cARTwheel Collaborative at Percolator Gallery, Paddington in October.
good wishes go out to all my readers over this holiday season.
I wish you a Happy Christmas.I hope you will have time to stop and relax; to enjoy the company of family and special friends; and may you have time to dream a little…
