I've been away so long it's almost hard to know where to start. The past year was sad and terrible. My father lost his battle with cancer and we said good bye in September. These holidays were hard without him, even though I had the love and support of all my family around me. I know I am very blessed to have many wonderful people in my life, and I count all the lovely people I've met through this blog too.
The new year is here and I have arrived to a place where my mind and heart are a little freer and happily, I found the space to create some art again.
My first painting for the new year is this watercolor of a quilt my grandmother made. I've always loved it, and I found it again recently when I was cleaning my dad's house. Family has been such an important part of the past year that I decided to make a painting of it since seeing it always makes me happy.
I hope that each of you have a wonderful new year surrounded by people and things that make you happy. Let's have a beautiful 2014!
