Happy New Year!

I sat on my chaise
in the early morning hours,
drawing my first zentangle of 2015,
waiting for the fireworks to subside
so the dogs would quit barking
and I could sleep.
And praying Frankles wouldn't be awoken
by the barky dogs. 

I have also been trying to come up with a word
that would describe my art for 2015.
A word that would carry through
into my art journals,
into my tangles and drawings.
A word that would describe who I am,
and who I want to be this coming year.
I've closely zeroed in on a word,
but I can't remember it,
so I had to make a note on my phone
for when I forget my word.
Too much going on in my life.

Part of me thinks my word should be:
slow down and take a breath.
Yes, I know. 
More than one word. 

Here is what I am thinking about - 

The Free Merriam-Webster describes that as:
marked by unrestrained imagination
rather than by reason and experience.
made without regard for reason or reality.
imaginary or unreal.

I think that pretty much describes who I am.
As a person.
As an artist.
As a blogger.
And I want to carry that into my new year,
to expand and build upon it,
to embrace it and let it describe me even more strongly.
In a positive and uplifting way.

Happier, more alive,
more satisfied with my life.

One other thing I want to incorporate
back into my art -
When I started this art journey 2 short years ago,
scripture popped up here and there in my artwork.
I need to get back to those roots.

What about you?
What are you looking for in this new year?
Where will your 2015 journey take you?


I've been waiting to hear from you :).
