I was good in 2010. As proof I offer the fact that Santa delivered to me, quite as a surprise, a set of acrylic paints, a sketchbook, like two dozen brushes, & six small canvases. My first creation was painted on Christmas Day. I call it "Future," & it's rather bleak.
Not much to say. Holidays are a nasty, brutish time. I'm paraphrasing Thomas Hobbes here, & he was talking about something else. I rather like the holidays, if they are kept in their proper place.
Right now I'm working on my Resolutions for 2011. This is an annual challenge for me. It's an attempt to balance my life into a highwire of scheduled events w/ plenty of wiggle-room for spontaneous fun & inspiration. Too much schedule, we become automatons. Too much spontaneity, nothing gets done. At least w/ myself. Hence the Resolutions.
So anyway--have a Happy New Year! And be good. You too may earn acrylics next year!
