1st Painting for 2010

This is my first painting for 2010.
Every year I paint my Mother in Law a diary for one of her Christmas presents, however these past few months I've been so busy that I actually forgot-how naughty of me.
Last week she handed me a blank diary to paint, so wasting no time I got stuck in my studio and this is what I come up! Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, safe and creative year in 2010
Hugs, Anna

Hi, Anna...I love your painting on a journal. What a good idea. It never enter my mind to do a painting on journals for my girls. I have done some miniatures one for them. At the moment I am thinking of doing painting on tins for the future...You do beautiful work.

That is just a beautiful gift idea to paint the front of a journal. I can well imagine with all the excitement and busyness going on around Christmas one could forget...its not being naughty..*s*. She would not let you forget for sure. This one is beautiful.

I wish you all the best for the new year 2010. It is so lovely having you as a blogging friend...and I look forward to our visits throughout this new year.

enjoy...
