I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas, I just think about it. Stephen Wright

New Year's Resolution: Paint.

How I spent part of the first day of the new year. After years of procrastination, I thought I'd start the year off with a resolution to paint. I always liked art classes as a kid in school but never seemed to get around to trying my hand at oil painting as a grown-up. It felt good and I think I'll try for one painting a month in 2011 and see how that goes. One down, eleven to go.
