Happy New Year!

Daylilies - here today, gone tomorrow with a new one in it's place. It seems like years are almost as fleeting as 2009 furls up its petals and shrivels into memories, recorded for many of us in our sketchbooks, journals and paintings. I've written pages about how its been, what I've learned and what I'd change, and pages more about the New Year - plans, resolutions, hopes... far too rambling and introspective to inflict on you, dear blogging friends... so I'm editing it down to a digestible package of a few points which I'll post in the next day or two, so you can hold me accountable (:oO)

But, predictably, it will be

Out With The Old and
In With The New...

Wishing every one of you a wonderful, interesting, fulfilling and happily memorable

HAPPY NEW YEAR, CATHERINE!! Those daylilies tell a great truth, don't they?! ("You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes..." James 4:14!!) Non-the-less, they are so beautiful and our lives can be beautiful too! So COME IN Love, Joy, Peace, Hope, Creativity, Celebration!! And may Time be our kind and hallowed friend, and not our enemy. Love & hugs XXXOOO

Thanks for the lovely Day lily painting - I think I've said this before, but you make 'spectacular' look so easy to achieve!
Looking forward to the digestible version of you plans and resolutions -- please don't change anything about the on-going graphic novel of your life!

Hi Cathy, I loved your "out with the old, in with the new" drawing!

It's not the new year here yet, although I think it is already 2010 by you.

So Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing many more of your beautiful drawings and paintings in 2010.

(Love the daylilies too!)

Thanks for the new year wishes Cathy, and your lilies are beautiful. I'd like to know how come we've got so much to get rid of at the end of each year? You'd think we'd learn our lesson a couple of years down the road...!

I too love the Graphic Novel of Your Life, Cathy. Great description, Charlene.

Best wishes for a Happy New Year, Cathy, I know mine will be brighter for the sharing of your paintings.

Beautiful! I like the idea of comparing daylilies to days.. they both go away really quickly! I shall have to remember that.
