Happy New Year! I have no resolutions for 2008.When I am resolved to do something, I usually just do it.I find it’s generally best when I think things through first though.

Yesterday I was working on a landscape painting which almost ended up inthe trash – Iwas so frustrated. However, I painted over what I was unhappy with and will begin fresh later.Landscapes are not easy for me because I still have to work on perspective. So I have been doodlingwith tips from an old pencil book. And of course when I am in such a mood I tend to think of what I would rather be working on and that is faces. It’s fun to capture a face and imagine the story behind it.
