Happy New Year!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying the holidays and have seen the New Year in with health, good fortune and peace.

 My heart goes out to the flood victims here in the UK, they have suffered terribly over the last few months and in the last few days. I hope that with the help of the authorities and the kindness of strangers they get their homes and their lives back soon.

Its a steely grey day today and rain has just begun to fall at three in the afternoon. I've painted this landscape with colours that speak to me of a quiet new years day.

 I have set myself a challenge of posting a painting everyday for the rest of the year. A tough challenge indeed, but I have been finding excuses galore not to paint this past year and I feel I need to pull myself up.
Happy New Year!

  3. Well done Azra, for your resolution and all that that takes. The quote "A goal without plans is just a wish" was in a recent posting in Robert and Sara Genn's Letter blog and made me think about the commitment it takes to do what you're doing. Happy New Year and wishing you good light on the horizon like in your painting!

  5. So pleased to hear of this resolution, Azra, especially as I know it'll produce amazing posts every day of the year! It's hard to envisage how you could improve but it's been proven that daily practice does that so I'm excited to see what you produce. Now there's a challenge but I know, my friend, that you are more than up to it!
