DWELL ON DREAMS. Can one feel good about themselve, but still want to improve?

A merry day after Christmas, and I'm back to work; planning what New Years resolutions to resurrect from last year. Diet, exercise, and a tidier house are usually on the list, and I can honestly say I am getting better at these things. Isn't that what life is after all? A big self-improvement workshop?

A DIFFERENT PATH FOR NOW. Winter landscape oil painting

The Favored Trail
oil on linen  8 x 10"

I have made a lot of changes in my art and my business the last few years, but have neglected to update my marketing as well. The blogs and daily painting sites worked so well for a time, but I've come to the conclusion that I need to shake up my marketing plan, just as I've shaken up my painting skills.
Thank you to all my readers and comment-ers. You have no idea how much your interest and support means to me.

THE BEST THINGS IN WINTER chickadee watercolor painting

Woodland Chickadee
watercolor  5 x 7"

What are the best things in Winter?
My immediate response is a trip to San Diego!

Living the cold Northeast for the last 21 years, I have yet to acclimate. I have learned to appreciate being indoors, appreciating my warm shelter and work space, and taking advantage of (painting) my beautiful surroundings.
