Like most everyone who creates things, I look to the coming year and wonder what’s ahead in the studio. And like most everyone who creates things, I have some plans – perhaps not very definitive but I do have them.
Looking back at 2012, I am rather surprised at the twists and turns so I expect this New Year will be much the same in a different way. Or maybe it will be different in much the same way.
The promise of what’s ahead encourages me to get my head organized; my ideas sorted and begin working. There are some things I would like to try. There is always something I want to learn. And of course, there are a few stragglers - those projects that were pushed sideways when another one took priority.
While straightening my studio for the fun ahead, I found some of those unfinished projects that I want to complete and became inspired on a few new projects I want to begin.
Most of them involve teddy bears – I know you are so very surprised. Let me tell you, I myself was gobsmacked!
After all this time, one might begin to wonder is there anything that hasn’t been done but I am continually amazed at what my fellow artists create so perhaps there are a few things. I intend to give it my best shot.
Inspiration seems to ooze with the start of a New Year so I’m hoping I can turn it into some tangible and fun things. Oh, and maybe with a little bit of a surprise.
It’s either that or figure out a way to bottle that inspiration so it’s available later. I have a feeling that probably won’t be something I manage to accomplish. I might as well get started.
Finally, I would like to say to you, blog readers, thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for reading, commenting when you have something to say and for the emails you send my way. I hope that when you stop here for a few minutes you leave with a smile or some inspiration. Welcome 2013!
