New Artwork for 2010

"Claire"

"Arabella"

"Maggie"


New art available through FindFolkArt on Ebay. An amazing group of folk artists selling art exclusively through the Ebay store..FindFolkArt. All of my paintings are available now. You can still find my artwork at my website.
I am determined to celebrate this new year. I am looking at 2010 as a tremendous opportunity for me...Here's my goals for the year.
1. I am determined to get healthy this year. After going to the doctor last week, I realized that now is the time to lose weight. My blood pressure is elevated and my cholesterol is high. I am now on medication to decrease my cholesterol and the next step is medication for my blood pressure. I have a family history of heart disease and I am developing all of the risk factors. I came home and went online and signed up for Weight Watchers online. I have been on the "diet" for a week now (it really doesn't feel like a diet) and plan to change my lifestyle. We have moved my treadmill to a more accessible location and will start walking daily.
2. I want to finish more artwork every week. Not only do we need the extra income (I have been the only working adult in the home for 2 years now) but creatively, I need to stay busy.
3. I want to spend more time with family. I spent too much time working last year and too little time with my children (adult children). I'd like to plan family nights more often.
That's all I've got! Self,family and art...I think those are the important things. If I can make small changes every day, I'll be happy.
Be good to yourself,
Karen

Hi Karen Happy New Year!
I am on the healthier road in 2010 too. I considered WW, but I am using a Ipod app.calorie counter. Thanks for sharing your goals. I am loving the artwork you are creating!
