January 21st: Read “The Art Spirit”

Well, my book reading is off to a great start. I finished “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” and have to say, it was a GREAT, easy and thrilling read.

As I browse through my list of other things to do this year I came upon, “Read ‘The Art Spirit’”. It was actually a book introduced to me by my art teacher back in high school… that I have to admit was 20 years ago 😮 oh how time flies!

I remember being assigned to read certain passages or sections of the book and always felt inspired. But it was high school and I had a seven class work load, so I didn’t often read for pleasure.

The book has been sitting on my bookshelf, untouched, since then!

I often see if and try to remind myself to read it. Many times I think, that book could build some inspiration to be more artistic on a regular basis. Maybe it is just what I need to inspire myself, artistically.

August 6th: Paint All Day

I had a very different idea of what this meant when I put this on the list for the year. I anticipated that it would mean fine art painting. But after buying a house that is simply not the case. 

I spent today painting my kitchen. I am overjoyed with how the house is coming along.

Here are photos of my kitchen on move in day:


Now I have taken down some of the cabinets, painted the walls and painted the cabinets. Take a look:


The next exciting step is building these cool shelves to put up in place of the cabinets:


And, I have already picked out a color for the bathroom.

Owning a house is so fun!
