The Spirit of the Paint . Happy New Year

In Progress

The contemporary horse painting above is in progress. The destination is unknown, but I am taking my time and seeing where the Spirit of the Paint leads me.

“Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering 'it will be happier'...” Alfred Lord Tennyson

Happy New Year from Golden Pond Studio ... from both myself and from Terry, the ultimate packer shipper and wonderful man that puts up with me. We were up early for an intimate breakfast of pancakes and fresh fruits... and then I finished up some soup and butter beans for my mom with some fresh baked cornbread. It was fast trip in and of Dallas because our Puppy Annie is still under the weather from her infection she arrived home with.

Friends from the Lake were the first before seven this morning to call and wish us a Happy New Year... and then just a few hours later, another call from my sweet friend Ann, also out near Lake Cypress Springs. We really miss our friends from our life there. It was a short three years but it was packed with so much to do almost every weekend and throughout the week. Terry and I discussed it and we have to step up the involvement this year.

I really do not make New Years Resolutions...but I do think about where I need to broaden my life. We eat healthy, we do not need to lose weight... but we do need more contact with friends and family. I am also doing a prayer journal this year and will report as I go along if I can keep up with it.
