Make a wish

Last year I went on a Thank You quest by the end of the year, I felt it was important to show appreciation to the people that made my year better one way or another.

Loved to do it. I don't do this every year, neither I send christmas cards, honestly I seldom text people for christmas, when I do I want it to be special and personal and hopefully make that person's day a little bit brighter.

Have you ever made new year resolutions? or a new year planning? or a wish list? I have, it's private, just for me, with musts, goals and wild wishes.

Last month -thinking about the next year's one and revisiting my last year one- have made me realize how important the wishes section on that list is.

That's why this year I've gone and done little paintings again, proper christmas cards this time, filled with stars ready to grant all kind of wishes.

So make a wish, make many, from the heart, believe that you can make them happen and go for it!

May 2012 be your best year yet.

Hi, Teresa,
The painting is so charming!! It was really a pleasure to read your posts and enjoy your wonderful work. Illustration is not easy. Illustration is much like "frustration," isn't it? Take it easy. Let us work on the projects and move forward in 2012.
Best wishes,Sadami

Teresa, I received my little angel and star yesterday and was so delightfully surprised. Your work always thrills me - it is so original and beautiful and well painted. What paper did you use for this - it is very heavy like watercolor board but I don't think they make it in these sizes? You are a wonderful friend and I will definitely reciprocate - hopefully, in time for the Three Kings Day and your special day/birthday :) You are a gentle, caring, wonderful person and I'm very happy to have you as a friend.

LOL Sadami, you must be right, like "frustration", but the most rewarding kind of frustration ^_^. Lets rock 2012!

Pat, thank you! same back at you :)

Rhonda I'm so happy you liked it! The paper is watercolor paper, Fabriano 300lb Soft Pressed, it doesn't come in those sizes, I cut it ot the desired size for the cards :) Love you!

The "ultimate of the best of everything" sounds amazing Ann! thanks!!! Hope you're having a quiet day, a huge hug, love you!

Irina, happy holidays to you too! Gotta follow your example and create more more more everyday :)
