Not an end of year Review

I've been really enjoying some of the Artists' Blogs that feature an end of year review or showing their top ten paintings for 2012.

So spurred on by their wonderful posts, I've tried writing an end of year review but soon realised that some of the paintings in my earlier posts no longer exist. They've been radically altered, been painted over or simply binned. So instead, scunnered at my wasting materials and effort, I've made what I hope is an achievable plan for next year.

A plan for 2013

 Do not feature a painting on this Blog until I'm as sure as I can be that it's finished and is about to go to the framers.

 Try to take decent photos

Build up a small painting stock so I no longer run around like a headless chicken when I notice an exhibition is just a week away. Too much stress !

Remember why I paint - it's for the love of the painting process and something I can't live without. Enjoy it .

Take time to enjoy the other things that bring me such pleasure especially my 7 grandchildren.

And maybe I'll try painting them!



  1. These sound great ideas for a plan.. infact I may pinch some of them, especially the 'remember why I paint' Happy new year Bridget.

  2. I totally get what you're saying, Bridget....enjoy the grandkids and paint for the love of it. I'm going to do just that. xo
