HAPPY NEW YEAR

I can't begin to tell you how inspirational I've found starting  my 2 blogs Painting & Nonsense (where I hope to make you smile)  and My Watercolour Blog which is more serious. I've met some lovely people and you have given me the joy of painting back.  I thank you.

I wish my arty blog friends a Wonderful 2013.

If you have your health you have wealth
If you have friends you are rich
If you have arty bloggy friends you have inspiration a-plenty

My New Year Arty Resolutions

1. Paint more often
2. Paint different subjects and media
3. Experiment more
4. Don't use ultramarine in every painting
5. Enjoy the battle, be brave and have fun throughout each battle

Have you any arty resolutions?

  1. A lovely positive post Polly. I sent you a reply last night. Just checking to see if you got it. My resolution is as always "never to make any" as I always break them... lol. Maybe a bit defeatist but I'm quite self-motivated anyway and it's less pressure this way. Happy New Year and may 2013 bring lots of wonderful things your way. xx

    1. Yes, thank you. Going to set that up this week! I never make resolutions but perhaps art ones I can keep. It's a long time since I felt so inspired. Have a wonderful 2013, keep painting your lovely masterpieces! x

    1. Mm indigo, had nearly forgotten it. Must dig it out. I have smiling days when I just smile at strangers in the street. It is quite rewarding. I do get the odd strange look. Happy New Year

  5. Happy New year, Polly! Good resolutions! I wish you to have lots of inspiration, and in your mind to substitute "battle" for "fun" ;)

  7. Hi Polly,
    don't throw out ultramarine blue, it makes amazing colors when mixed with burnt sienna, a very dark blue or a very dark brown or a very dark almost black depending on how much paint and water you use. Have you ever used Royal Blue or Marine Blue by Holbein? They are beautiful blue options.
    I love your resolutions. My biggest arty resolution is to paint the subjects that inspire me even if they seem silly, like pajamas.
