These were the first two posts I made a year ago when I started on this blogging adventure. I have learned so much since then and appreciate all the inspiration and encouragement I have received from all of you. I am looking forward to another great painting year. Thank you for spending time with me and now go take a walk in the snow with a friend or go sledding and have a great day. FYI.. New York City today is 51 degrees the complete opposite of last years snow storm.
