We all vow when the new year comes around we will  make changes in our lives. We want to diet, stop smoking, clean the attic or just simplify our very hectic lives.

I decided to make a change with my art, and create outside of my confort zone. I don't know yet what I will do-but I am searching the inner workings of my mind for ideas.For now I am sketching , throwing paint, using words in my pieces, hanging vintage metal jewelry on my art, and doing whatever comes to my mind.

I'm letting the piece come to me as it wants to and I am not forcing anything. It is very freeing to just create without an agenda or a pre-conceived idea of what to paint. For me this is a big change.

So I challenge everyone to try something different with their art this year -shake it up get out of your painting comfort zone- create something out of the box.

Who knows you could create the next big thing.

Happy New Year
