Happy Holidays, late as it is!
November and December were very busy for me, so I didn't get too many Christmas Cards out or other greetings of the Holidays. But I was thinking of you all.
In November of 2012 I was busy setting up a new Studio/Gallery space here on Broadway in Alden, NY. That took alot of my time away from painting/drawing and computer-ing(is there such a word?). So I've been quiet except for the posts about the Grand opening on December 1st, 2012. Since then it has been very busy with the new space and family visiting and all the usual Holiday and Christmas things we do.
So, as I start a new year in a new studio, my first permanent public space, I hope to create more work and have more people see it than before. I'm looking forward to meeting friends new and old. Spending time visiting with whosoever God brings in the door as well as having the additional working space to try some larger works that I've been desirous to do. This year will bring what it brings, I'm excited and anxious, looking ahead and leaving the comfort of a sequestered studio.
Thank you all for the encouragement in my endeavors for the last year or so. I wouldn't trade this job for another except with great reluctance. I do love my job! (most of the time, every work has it's unpleasantries).
