Is it just me or is 2016 off to a kind of wobbly start? I mean, things are OK around here and there is a lot of creative energy in the air but there is also an underlying sense of being overwhelmed and underwhelmed at the same time. Too many projects piling up, too many meh results. My plan for this year is to sort through what is working and what is not and then to pare down and chose projects wisely. Pictured above are the mittens I finally finished (and love), this bread which was more involved than expected (but smells amazing) and three paintings I am working on (today). Is your year off to a smooth start or do you feel it too?
