Last day of 2010 and memories...

Happy New Years!   I have so many exciting art projects for the new year that I am so excited to talk about but I am under strict orders to wait to tell the world about it until the video is complete.  YES! a video! That's all I can say!  Here is a pic of me at the shoot today.  :)  I have so many exciting things planned.
This year has been a truly exciting and life changing year for me.  I quit my cubicle job and decided to paint full time.
I had all kinds of adventures all over Europe and different parts of the United States.  I really saw some amazing things that changed my life.
Made some amazing paintings and opened a small shop on etsy.  Been in some great art shows.
This year I also really committed to my tiny blog and make new friends.   I am great-full for all of the little things in my life, the people, and little animals.
Cheers! Happy New Year!  Toast to much luck and happiness in the new year. :)

happy new year, Erika. It is so nice that technology makes it so easy for like-minded people to 'get together' and be supportive to one another. I hope the momemtum you had going at the end of last year transfers over to 2011 and pushes you into fabulous things!

Happy New Year Erika ... you had such a fabulous year in 2010, I can't even imagine what you'll accomplish this year ... I'm really looking forward to your video.

I'm looking at making big changes in my job this year, and you're always an inspiration when it comes to 'quitting the day job'. Your blog has honestly been a joy and a pleasure to read ... and I know there's more of that to come.

PS. You always look so happy in your photos. I love that.
