New Year Resolutions
A new year always brings plans and projects. I am, like Laura, not making any big promises to myself, I want to keep things fluid and to be able to jump ship, or catch the slow boat to China when necessary. But, I have decided to give myself one small project.

Of course I shall be painting other things as well...
