A new year and a new painting...

9" x 12" Watercolor

We are well into January already!  Those first weeks after Christmas I use to
delve into more new books, thumb through the magazines I didn't have time for before, plan new projects, dream my way through Pinterest (I love Pinterest), but all of a sudden I wake from this reverie and realize it's time to create!

Last year at this time I was just beginning to learn Adobe Illustrator and use more of my digital drawing apps (there are so many!).  Well I put my new found skills to good use and created fabrics from my sketches.  That was exciting and probably the hilite for me for 2012.  I have started to lay a foundation for textile designs and want to learn more, so I will be creating more fabrics for 2013.

But after all this I realize what I was missing were my paints and brushes.  I'm even thinking this image above may end up being printed on some cotton sateen!
