Starting off the New Year

Hello and Happy New Year!

I’m busy starting off this New Year refocusing on what makes me happiest. That will be, rolling up my sleeves and getting messy with paints, gels, and mixed media. All the while staying true to my love of rusty, grungy, abstract, dimensional art (along with altering vintage pieces for our upcoming markets of course).

First, I am going to organize my craft room, which will hopefully include moving my office out of my creative space.  It really is a distraction with unanswered emails, and mountains of paper work calling to me. Look at this mess that accumulated when I put my art on hold over the holidays and used the space for storage and rushed Christmas projects. Ugh – Wish me luck!

Then, I am going to just play and do what ever comes to mind.  I think this Finnibair style altered journal cover I did last year, will be my jumping off place.  As well as the inspiration I get from from art journaling, like these Dina Wakley pieces I did during a recent class with her. Hopefully this all will give me the motivation for a productive and happy year of art making.

Have fun this year with what ever makes you happy.

I’ve been seeing this quote recently and it struct a chord with me….

You never know what someone is going through. Be kind. Always.

Happy New Year,

Cheers Val
