Happy New Year to all BJP participants!
I love the feeling of a fresh start and joining in a project like this is an excellent way to begin 2012. Many thanks to those of you who have left comments - I appreciate them very much. I hope to reply soon, but I haven't got the hang of it yet. Whenever I key 'publish' my message disappears. I think I've just about got my ideas sorted and am looking forward to the challenge. I paint mostly with acrylics but now I want to paint with beads. I think the pieces will have a mind of their own and I can't wait to see how each month's picture evolves.
New Year is such an optimistic and positive time. I wish you all health and happiness in the year to come.
