Old Dogs. New Tricks.

old dogs. new tricks. Old Dogs. New Tricks. New Year! 
Happy new year all! I hope 2015 is off to a great start for you. 
I'm pleased to say that I finally launched my WEBSITE! 
 I had to take my own advice and just put it out there. 
I can tinker endlessly and the new year seemed like a great time to go live. 
You will also see a few small changes to my blog as well.

  Watercolor palette The GB sudio is humming along. My paint and brushes are out. 
Truly, I never suffer from a lack of inspiration and ideas. 
My goal this year is to focus just a wee bit more.

  Winter berries. I keep dreaming about doing more botanicals. 
 These dried winter berries are simply divine. 
So, I think a good place to begin is working with what's around me. 
I always think it's best not to make things too complicated. 
 Do you make resolutions or set goals for the year?
