There's something so fresh about the first day of the new year. I was thinking about new approaches and beginnings yesterday afternoon, while I was tidying up my bathroom. This painting, above, hangs in that room (and pretty much dominates it). It's funny because while there doesn't seem to be lots going on in the painting (it's a simple landscape after all, painted in a slightly out-of-focus technique) to me it's quite powerfully full of potential. I think it looks like a new slate, free of decisions, fresh, approachable.
Rather like the new year...we get to decide what kind of year we will have.
I hope yours is full of possibility and happiness, and that you are able to accomplish what you choose to!
