Last post for 2018


 This is a commission for a very precious baby. The last piece of work I've done in 2018.
2018 I can say had it's share of ups and downs, nothing alarming.Nothing we couldn't resolve or cope with.
Some fantastic commissions and teaching assignments which meant travelling to new places and meeting great people. We closed our bed and breakfast but that's given me more time and energy to pursue my creative pursuits.
This quote pretty much sums up the year for me
Life is amazing. And then it's awful.
And then it's amazing again. And in between the amazing and the awful its ordinary and mundane and routine.
Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary.
That's just living heat-breaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful, ordinary life. And it's breathtakingly beautiful.
- L R Knost
I'm sure 2019 will be an exciting year 'Your works are wonderful and I know that full well' Psalm 139.
Wishing all who stop here a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019. I hope you discover for yourself that life is amazing.

Maya, such an excellent quote. It probably describes many of our lives well. And the quote from your commission is equally beautiful: Your works are wonderful, and I know that full well. Wishing you a new year full of wonderful amidst all of the other things that will be. (Your commission is beautiful, by the way!)
