Happy 2012!

Happy New Year to everyone! 2011 has been an amazing year for me. So much has happened and I owe you all a huge thank you for your unwavering support of my work.

Foreclosure Quilt Series, all made in 2011.
I've accomplished more quilts than I thought possible, had a wonderful collaboration with Vanessa Filley and starting planning a new series.

Quick study on new series which has since been tossed aside.
But the best part of all was making friends with all of you. It is so nice to know there are other artists out there that have similar struggles making art. There are certainly ups and downs, though it seems a lot of us have had a great year. It was also amazing to realize that some of you live really close by! It was wonderful to have the chance to meet in person and hope we meet more frequently in the new year.

Resolutions? Plans for 2012? I have four. First and foremost, I plan to continue the foreclosure series and spread the word as best I can. Second, I am starting a new series on landgrabbing, hopefully this month. Third, I will continue to write this blog and try to find more amazing artists out there to share with you. And the biggest, craziest plan? To tackle a huge, new garden and blog about that as well. Head over here to see my first post. Wish me luck!  What are your big plans for 2012? I wish you luck as well!

Happy New Year Kathryn! Your resolutions are inspiring. I resolve to take myself more seriously as an artist...which means making my schedule a priority. I still plan to clean out my attic (leftover from last year's resolutions), and get outside into the fresh air every day...and I'm doing the drawing a day again this year and continue blogging as well. I'm so glad you are there...I so appreciate your voice.

Hi K. love that little detail of the quilt that got laid aside, I think you showed it before. lovely in texture and colors. A garden blog... Why not ;-) ? Onwards!

i hope to be able to do more creative things, and have a gallery show! i'm working on a small series, so maybe it will lead to the latter.

onward and upward!

@Lari - I'm liking what I see so far on those drawings of yours! Keep it up! @Anastasia, I have my fingers crossed for you on the gallery show!

Happy New Year to you Kathryn! I wish you the best with all your creative pursuits - both in the studio and out in the garden. Sounds like a lovely way to balance the new year.
