New Years Resolutions

I'm not making any.

  Instead of resolutions, I am making intentions. I like that word better. The word "resolutions" sounds to me like I am just trying to possibly resolve hypothetical problems. Things in my life that are not working for me, almost resigning myself to the fact that I even have issues and must correct them. Does that make sense?

  Intentions, on the other hand, means to me that I "intend" to make changes. It's my choice to make them and fix them in my own way and in my own time. Much better. I really don't need the pressure!

  One of my "intentions", is to get a morning routine going. This is hard for me as I tend to procrastinate the most in the morning. I will say to myself, "Ok, I'm going to get into the studio early today" but instead, I make a side trip into the kitchen to find dishes in the sink and a floor that needs mopping. By the time I'm done with those chores, I may notice that the driveway is covered in leaves..........and so it goes. See, this really isn't an issue, it's just a habit thats not working for me.

  Here is the morning routine I want to adopt. Wake up, shower,  feed the critters, Do my morning Yoga stretches, make coffee and then get my butt in the studio before 9:00 ! It CAN be done! I know, because I actually tried it this morning and it worked! Ha!

  Now I just have to turn it into my NEW habit and voila!

  Anywho, I did manage to finish another mini painting before Christmas day. This one is based on "Winter Bird" which sold really quick. This is "Winter Birds" cousin......."Snow Bird"

I really like the detail on the sides of the canvas. 

And I am now working on these two mini's...........

Can you tell what this is?

Yes, your right....that is pattern tissue. 

I will keep you posted on the progress of these two minis. I hope all your New Years "Intentions", if you decide to make some, all work out for you too!
