Painting is always a challenge. There are so many colors, themes, materials and brush strokes to consider. Still, for me, it helps loosen the ropes on my creativity and vision. The most successful attempts are often when the brush finds it's own path and when paint mixes a certain way. Ways often never repeated again.

In this coming year, my hope in art is to cast a wider net, to take chances and to let the brush of camera, canvas and pen run where they want to.
