I accidentally pushed the button to publish this post before it was finished. Add to that that I am not sure if it went out to all my followers.
So please forgive. I am sending it again with the missing ending.
We’ve just been through our Christmas holidays and I hope that everyone had a warm and wonderful time. Dennis went to Connecticut where we always go to visit and be with his family. This year though I had to stay behind to take care of our senior cat maggie.
I was thinking about what my end of the year post should be. The last designs dennis and I did this year is a series called Autumn Melody. Three different mums and a sunflower make up the melody.Think of Nat King Cole singing Autumn Leaves. I listened to that song as I painted.
I wanted richness of color and form this time.
I like what I achieved and now want to do more in this richer more solid color. My next project will be four rooster designs. Roosters are colorful and very patterned and feathers are fun to do. We have two weeks before the Atlanta’s Mart show and I am considering getting one painted before then. Maybe even two and a background. Roosters are always popular.
I’ve been busy getting our appointment schedule set up and I am definitely ready for something creative.
Amia, the company that does beautiful stained glass objects and who did my hummingbird and morning glory design, is now rolling it out into a full product line of around 12-15 lovely products. Can’t wait. Our peacock design is close to becoming coasters. New Christmas flag and bag designs on the way. A new coastal flag and coastal Area rugs which we should see at the show. Ooh la la Paree will be appearing on mugs, bags and flags.
One of my New Years wishes is to see more of our designs on diverse products. I’ll have to speak to the wish fairy about that. Feel free to contact her with your own New Year’s wishes!
Happy New Year
