I'm sitting here with my new 2020 calendar and my weekly organizer and it has really just sinking in that we have made it to a new decade. I understand that some would correct me and say that this is actually the last year of the decade and that 2021 is actually the start of the next decade. Either way, I'm excited for this year and what God has in store for this year for me personally as an artist.
Some things that jump to mind immediately is that this is a leap year. It is also here in the United States both a census year and a presidential election year. Some exciting things as a nation to look forward to. My second hobby/passion is genealogy and so I'm always happy to include myself and my family in the census data. Maybe 100 years from now there will be someone excited to find me.
A new year is always so full of promise and new beginnings. I had knee surgery on Jan 2nd and so I'm looking forward to becoming a bit more active this year. I'm still in recovery right now so it's hard to tell if my steps will be pain free. I sure hope so as I want this to be a year that I try get stronger.
This year I want to be more organized in my studio and use my time to be more focused and productive. I think many artists struggle with staying focused and I find myself wasting too much of the time that I could be creating or promoting my art.

The final painting for 2019 was this adorable pair of piglets that I'm calling "Hogs and Kisses". The canvas measures 11" x 14" so it is just a sweet little piece that makes me smile every time I walk into my studio and see it.
