Happy New Year

New Year's Resolutions

I never make New Year's resolutions. The main reason is that they're broken or forgotten within hours of making them. That's not to say I don't think about the direction or flow in which my life is going. I find it easier to talk about intentions and being a painter it relates I suppose to how I view painting. I often see it as a journey, an exploration. What do I want to learn, how do I want to play, experiment or explore a certain theme? Sometimes it works in wonderful ways beyond my expectations and sometimes not. The most important thing is to create. A favorite quote of mine is: "Curving back into myself  I create again and again." Ovid.
My New Year's intention is to allow myself the space and time to curve back into that infinite source of being and create........... no judgment, no expectation.

Some of us like to create on our own, but some like the motivation of a class setting. I have new classes starting in the Beach on Tueaday evenings,  Jan. 15th and Thursday evenings January 17th. There is a 4 week Saturday class in the Yonge-Lawrence area at Fairlawn Neighbourhood Centre starting January 19th. Beginner or more experienced all are welcome.
