"Happy New Year"

A special thank you to Susan V. Gabriel who honors me as "Artist in Residence" on the winter edition of her wonderful website. She chose my work to celebrate the winter solstice.

Join in and visit the Winter edition of Celebrating Beauty in Words and Images. Read Susan's poems, musings, seasonal quotes and see a slideshow of paintings by artist in residence, Johanne Cassia. May your particular celebration bring you much joy and warmth and may 2014 bring you Abundance, Peace and Love,  Susan V. Gabriel,, Celebrating Beauty in Words and Images.
