Early December I picked my word for next year, didn't write it down and it vanished! Then I read a lovely post The power of one little word, by Katherine Jeanne Wood...... about how the word Change affected her life. I was going to steal her word but I'm not ready for that yet! So I decided to go through the alphabet....a J and a P came to mind....and I tried to think of words that would work with J nothing came to mind except joke....so I picked a "P" and Polish was the first word that came to mind...."JUST POLISH" that's exactly what I need, to polish my poetry, polish my painting, polish my words. So I decided to make a list of P words I want to incorporate into my New Year!!

Last years " Glean" wasn't as good as the 2013's " Focus"! I am still a bit uneasy about "Polish" as my year is not off to the best creative start! It seems to be more about writing than art these days! Every time I look at the word POLISH I don't see something smooth and glossy, I see Polish as in people from Poland and want to fry up a sausage with sauerkraut....I just can't get used to it!! So I continued on my hunt for a new word...
Truthfully I am still trying to find my creative way.... I know only one thing for sure! I am ALL about colour!! Plus I love doing digital art too but haven't quite the right tools for that yet! I asked myself what I want to accomplish this year because I am always all over the place. I admire those who can stick to one subject and focus on that. I want to feel confident in finding my style. I am a completely intuitive artist and wait for something to come to me, I rarely take charge of what I am going to create. Although at times I do! Maybe that's why the gratitude art journal could work for me because it's forcing me to think and draw more...still kidish though.
Are you still waiting for my word...... well at first I thought I really need to THRIVE....and then I thought nope still not it, ..... I need to BLOOM!! That's my 2015 word.....BLOOM.... and yes I want to do all the above too!!
A very humorous little video on Britto art shoes....It's only a minute but you will get a chuckle out of it!! Sorry I tried to embed it but couldn't!
