We spent a couple of days south with my family. I had a few days of lounging around at the house, then we had an epic NYE party, complete with photo booth, live music and door prizes! (we know how to throw a party! )
NYE at our house:
My bother played music all night, with this girlfriend singing.
Finished a few fluid paintings over my 'staycation'.
Started the #30daysofcreativepractice on the 1st. Below was the "layers" prompt day. I am exploring during this 30 day practice. trying new things; finding out what I like and what I don't like. Practicing lines and shapes and color combos. Honing in on my artistic style.
it's been fun so far and such a learning experience! I'm on day 7 today!
I hand painted and gold leafed ceramic ornaments this year for Christmas gifts. Everyone has loved them! I even gave a couple away as door prizes at our NYE party.

This 24x18" oil painting (+cold wax) was finished over the holidays, as well. This is going to friends of mine. It's called Beneath the Surface.
Whew! this post was a big 'catch-up'! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season!
