Inspired by Cathy’s end of year mosaic I have compiled my own, I was feeling the need to reflect on my work ready to move forward into the New Year. Thanks to Cathy for great inspiration and a fantastic link into the wonderful world of Flickr.
Over the last few months I have been more productive than in 10 years, It has been exciting to explore ideas quickly for a change. I am still struggling to except that I work better on mixed media pieces and I need to let go my obsession with painting as an exclusive medium and develop ideas and techniques further.
New year plan
 2010 to be the year of direction.
Daily sketches, Focused on the figure and scenarios.
More sewing, developing ideas and small projects
Collaboration with Claire Pickles on a textiles project……watch this space.
Continue to do what ever takes my fancy!
Maybe try to sell a little more so as to fund my projects (but not get stressed about it!)
It has been a great year for me in many ways, but certainly creatively its been the best for a very long time, more of this please, roll on 2010 xxx
