My first post of 2015!  Wow!  The holidays were so busy and I hit the ground running in 2015 and finally got a painting completed.  I’m so happy to be back at the easel after a lovely holiday vacation.

We spent Christmas in San Diego at a lovely tropical resort.  The gardens were lush and beautiful with koi ponds scattered throughout.  I grabbed a pic with my cell phone and new I had to paint it!

I’m challenging myself to try new things in the coming year.  I’ve been playing with a new surface– painting on wood panels instead of canvas.  I’m already in love, although, it takes a bit more work to prepare the surface of the board.  I think it’s really going to work well for me.  I’ve also started experimenting with cold wax medium.  I think it’s something that I’m going to love, but I’m working on learning how to use it.  Which is why, I haven’t posted any work until now.  I’m kinda on a learning curve at the moment.  However, I love how this painting turned out!  I can see that I’m really going to enjoy working with these new elements.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and that 2015 brings you new challenges and great success!
