I've been a bit slow in getting my thoughts together, this new year rushed upon me before I was ready. I always like to do a past year review and then like to plan ahead for the coming year.
I’ve finally picked my word for 2012, something that I’ve never done before. It felt like a good place to start, it sums up how I was beginning to feel at the end of 2011 and gives me hope for 2012.
My word is ‘FITTING’ – a strange word to pick – I suppose.
This is how it came to me:
As the noise of New Year celebrations woke me from sleep I saw a tower and in front of the tower I saw a completed jigsaw puzzle. I didn’t immediately get the word; I had to let the image swim around in my head for awhile. After I completed this painting the word slowly emerged, and seemed to resonant with how I have been feeling. I find that I’m fitting into my skin better, that I’m more content and feel a better fit with my life – for the first time ever. So it seems to be the perfect fit – pardon the pun.
Katie loves to sneak into my studio and paint when I'm out - it makes me happy
