Ending the Year with Gratitude

December 31, 2010

"Follow" - Acrylic Monotype with Collage on Freezer Paper

Here is another in the series of little passages that I began this week. There are more to come in the new year.

Artists who Inspire

I also thought I’d share a few random images from artists whom I find inspiring.

Otium cum Dignitade, 1964 - Hans Hofmann

Sign and 3D Material - Antoni Tapies

Ace - Robert Rauschenberg

With Gratitude

Finally, with this last post of 2010, I want to say how much you have inspired me and brought warmth and smiles to my life. You are appreciated more than you know. My wish for you is that you will have a joyous and creative new year full of serendipity.

I don’t make resolutions. But what I want to do more of this year is reading my favorite blogs more often and leaving comments. I can attest to the fact that receiving a thoughtful blog comment is very much like getting a letter in the mail box. They are gifts of one’s time, especially appreciated in this era of 140 characters or less, and I always love getting them. I am eternally grateful for the gift of your time.

Enjoy your New Year’s celebration. I hope you will step confidently into 2011 with renewed inspiration and creativity!

    Hi Martha: I enjoy your posts and of course your art. You are so inspiring and I am so pleased at visiting with you each day. Thank you for your creativity, verbal communications and technique tutorials and sharing your art and heart. Happy New Year to you and to all the other artists who share our visions.

    Happy new year, Martha! And I appreciate your comments, too.
    Often it’s the comments that make us bloggers want to continue. It’s reassuring to know someone’s out there, and yes it is like getting a letter in the mail, almost.
    By the way, I don’t make resolutions either.
    Thank you for sharing your artistic and personal journey with your readers. Ditto to what Lisa Plemmons Harrison Caddel says so well in her comment! You are an inspiration.

    Happy new year Martha. May 2011 be kind to you and yours. Seeing the images you have selected makes so much sense to me – although your work is so clearly your own, I can feel the connection.
