It seems to be a trend over the last few years to choose a guiding word for the new year. A singleton resolution, so to speak. Last year my word was ‘undaunted’ and to commemorate it I purchased a sterling silver ring with UNDAUNTED engraved on it. (Midway through the year I accidently lost it, but that didn’t stop me from living up to my word).
I’ve decided that that is the year I am going to expand my creativity and work on developing my art. My word for this year is PAINT. I want to paint on a regular basis this year (several times a week, if not daily), developing my style and reaching 100 completed paintings by years end. I’m taking a painting class in September with Flora Bowley in Wisconsin (can’t wait!) and I intend to take a few other painting courses in March/April using the Michelle Cassou Point Zero method.
My only intention for this year is to paint. And that’s exactly what I intend to do.
What’s your word for this new year?
