Today marks the final day of my annual thirty-in-thirty studio challenge. When I woke up on this cold, January morning, sunlight was streaming through swirled crystals on the frosty glass windowpanes. As I peered through the frozen condensation, I thought about how different the world looks through this filter; how different it looks through all filters.

2014 is going to be a year of change. And though the course is still a bit unclear, I can feel it and I am excited by the possibilities.

Thank you so much for following along, and for your supportive comments here and on various social media outlets this month. I hope you will continue to check back in, going forward into the month of February and beyond. To those who have inquired about the availability of artwork, I thank you for your interest and will be posting new work —with size, frame options and pricing– in both linked galleries over the coming weeks.
