Year of the Dragon

Gong Xi Fa Ca! Wishing you prosperity! ( In Mandarin Chinese)

Yes, technically Chinese New Year was celebrated on Monday the 23rd. But it does spread over  a 15 day period ringing in the new year – so I feel I am still in a timely manner. For the beginning of January I was home recovering from surgery, so this really marks my new year as I get back to work and look forward to what 2012 will bring. 

Dragon 2012

According to Chinese astrology, people born on the year of the dragon are said to be strong, self-assured, eccentric, intellectual, and passionate, among other things.


I have been hibernating. I decided when my surgery was scheduled that I would take the month of January off. By necessity – to heal. And as that process progressed – to hibernate. I will admit – it was a major surgery,a necessary one and  a smashing success, yet a tough road, one that I am glad is behind me. The timing has been perfect – to hole up in the house, warm under a blanket, sipping tea – and reading. I have been reading like it was my job… And as January comes to a close, I am ready to get back to work. I have shows to plan, applications to mail, designs to sketch, artwork to create. Healthy and rested – 2012 I am ready for you now!

I did devote a good bit of time to 2 projects over the last two weeks. I had the pleasure of collaborating with my friend Betsy Molina Motenson for a show at the Center of Creative Arts in Yorklyn, DE… and I am participating in the 2012 Sketchbook Project sponsored by the Art House Co-op. Look for details and images on those in the coming days…

For now, I wish you long life, and prosperity…(As I hear Spock in my head…) I eagerly await the adventures and experiences that this new year will bring. Hope you will follow along with me.
