Canyon Ablaze


Canyon Ablaze, 24 x 36, Christmas commission piece
.
I have been on a bit of a hiatus, completely enjoying my family and the holidays... and now we are in a new decade and I am ready to get back to work. Being a goal setter (I'm a big believer in writing them down and being specific), I'm busy making lists that will lead to some familiar paths as well as to some new ones. But it's the unknown, unanticipated surprises that are always the most fun! Happy 2010!

Hi Laurel,

This is beautiful. You are right. Sometimes our plans are surpassed by unexpected events. Or as Mike Dooley at tut.com would say -- often!

Happy New Year!

XOXOXOXBarbara

Beautiful painting...it must look stunning in its new home. I love the colors and reflections.
I also feel the need to write down goals and create a mission statement to at least have an idea of where I want to go and what I would like to achieve. But as you say, the road we travel may have a surprise around the next corner. All the best for 2010!
