Professionally and domestically, it really is a whole new year for me, a year of transition.  

When my beautiful grandson was born, November 16, 2021, my transition began.

This New Year month, half over, has already launched me into a new, two-pronged direction ... a setting aside of time to spend with my grandson (which includes a lot of traveling) and a return to developing large-scale abstract paintings and collages.

Never one to make New Year's resolutions, nevertheless I've made one this year by returning to something I had forsaken way too long ago:  the everyday practice of private journal-writing.

I've used two mask prints to decorate the cover of one of my several new journals.  Both prints were made with heavy body acrylic paints using 9" x 12" Garden Montage L652.  This is by far the simplest journal cover I've ever made ...

... but its simplicity is significant to me. 

I will continue making blog posts "for some little while," to quote one of my (fun-loving) neighbors.  I may even make it to the end of 2022, but if not, that's okay with me too.
