7″x5″ oil on panel

This cardinal reminds me of a young man who has just needed to start shaving. He is red, so no longer a juvenile, but barley so. I love how he looks ready, eager even. That’s how I feel to start a new year, ready!

One thing I have worked hard at in my own art career is building discipline, or a habit to make art. One gift I feel like I can share with the world, is to encourage, inspire, or even impart some very practice how to’s on how to help you make more art. If you, dear reader, follow my blog because you like to look at my art and not make it yourself, try filling in whatever it is you wish you did more of when I talk about art. Let’s make 2019 THE year that you accomplish THAT goal!

Happy New Year!

Hope it is your best yet,
