Happy New Year!

Whew! The holidays are done and it’s time to start resolving, right?

This year I want to concentrate on remembering that I have enough of everything I need and to give as much as I can to causes I believe in. I think this has something to do with me turning 59 this year. There has been some research on 9-enders, that is people who are of an age ending in 9, and hey, that’s me. These 9-enders tend to do significant things at these times of their lives, like run their first marathons or start non-profits to help others, so I’m in good company when it comes to making some changes.

One of those things that I feel strongly about and would like to support with my art is the environment. So I’m going to re-start selling my daily paintings on ebay and donating 10% of sales to a local organization called AFFEW (A Few Friends for the Environment of the World). They educate the public, do beach clean ups and sponsor hazardous waste collection days, among other things. I hope you’ll help me support them by purchasing a daily painting or two.
