Happy Holidays!

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Holiday,  This year has flown by.  I started the year drawing silly little monsters that led to me writing a little children's book that I'm hoping will be published soon.  I thought it would be fitting to do a monster for my holiday card as well.  It's been a busy year work-wise.  Maybe that's why the year feels so short.  I have to remind myself to stop and take those precious moments with family and friends and get out of my little art hole. 

I had a somewhat frustrating year art-wise.  After months of monsters and years of my mechanical girls, I found myself just not sure where I was going with my art.  Where I used to get solace in my painting studio, I would sit for hours not sure what to make.  My friends all told me to not worry about it and just create what came out; but I missed the old familiar feelings of joy from painting.  I pushed through.  Took a lot of online classes and then finally I started feeling like I'm again heading in a new direction.  Not sure where it will end up, but I have serenity again in my painting.  I'm currently immersed in new drawings and paintings.  A new series I'm calling my woodland creatures are still evolving. I'm looking forward to a new year of painting and jewelry and family and friends. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday.  Let us take a moment to be grateful and remind our loved ones how much they mean to us.

Leslie
