Winter Table (detail)

New Year's Day, and the chance it provides to assess the past and look forward to the future, is one of my favorite holidays. On this January 1st, many thanks to all of you for your interest in my painting. It's a fine feeling to know that you are out there, when I'm working here alone on the hill...May your coming year be full of peace, health, happiness--and creativity, which can keep us going even when there's a lack of all other blessings!
