Racing Into 2010

 At The Races Original Watercolour by Jean Haines

How quickly a year passes. I am seeing  2009 out by saying goodbye to a favourite painting that sold recently. I have learned so much from my art. Not just painting.

I know when I look at a fresh piece of white paper I have that incredible feeling of excitement of adding colour to it.This is how I feel with a new year too.What will we all paint and achieve in 2010.

It is time to say goodbye to yesterday and open our hearts and imaginations to our new tomorrows.

My goal is to be a better artist............and work  towards a very special dream.

I wish you joy,happiness and all your dreams coming true in this new year.

Hi Jean - and I hope 2010 is good for you too - can it beat 2009? I just wanted to let you know I drop in here everyday for inspiration(even if I don't leave a comment!) and I am painting every day now. I am trying new techniques but struggling with colour - everything looks dull - so some work to do there. Have a wonderful new year - Sue
(ps I was priviliged to see this painting at Alton and it must be sad to see something that says so much go but you must be so proud that you created it)
