Here it is, my first post of 2011. I am officially sticking my tongue out at last year and looking toward the horizon.
New Year's Eve was a quiet evening with a few friends. There was 'Settlers of Catan', finger food, and fireworks at midnight. My friend Deanna was here. She's an artist (and high school art teacher). We broke out the Mandalas and markers:
This one's mine. It was going downhill fast but seemed to level off and end in a good place.
Pen and ink happens to be one of her favorite mediums, so it was no surprise that this lovely design evolved under her hand. I am inspired by the way she brought color into it. And that's the signature of a creative mind, don't you think?
My daughter's also been caught up in the spirit:
Lots of color! She's responsible for the first picture too. I'm so proud of her for throwing herself into any project that comes our way.
I took a break after this, my head being full of other details. Real life elbows it's way in line and has a way of taking precedence over personal projects and cyber-life. But here I am anyway, Super-Speck in the face of the universe, determined to keep moving forward.
