mix that all together and yep, that is happiness right there.

 January provides that quiet time for wandering through fresh books, pictures, paintings and blogs.... one can go from Birmingham to Flotte to Paris to Germany and then through New York and back to Birmingham in just a few minutes on the web of wonders.   Amazing how inspiration is really everywhere.  Seems the winter months create that space for dreaming, planning, sketching and making new ideas and projects. 
Things are buzzing around in my head with some fresh ideas for painting. Love it when that happens.
