I’m getting ready to ring in the New Year with absolutely no resolutions. Resolutions only set you up for failure and self doubt. Every artist that I have ever known has that in spades already. Every artist that I have ever known believes their art just is not good enough….could be better….needs work….isn’t as good as so and so’s art. So no resolutions. I am just going to draw when I need to…or want to…or have to. I’ll work on gourds and take photographs and do all the things I love to do. Hopefully, I will be inspired to create something beautiful or funny or tragic or beautifully hideous. Hopefully, my art will be just a little bit better this year. But I won’t be mad at myself if isn’t. I won’t be mad at all.
I hope this year is less worrisome and that we can avoid the fiscal cliff, get people working again, stop all of the crazy violence, escape the zombie apocalypse, and a bunch of other equally important stuff.
Since we have a snow storm today….here are some happy flowers to cheer you! We at the Charmed Gourd would like to wish you a very happy and healthy New Year! Got a wish for the New Year? You can post it here in our comments section! Connie
