Happy New Year, Celeste! Thank u for sharing a wonderful post & a thoughtful quote. I love them all. May 2014 will be a terrific year for you. Make lots of brilliant work and make us happy. (*right now, I’m enjoying b&w and colour. Make a mess!)
Best wishes, Sadami

The Swift quote made me laugh. Of course, I will live all the days of my life! Love the painting too...Your style is fabulous and it lends so much to what might be an ordinary composition elevating it to extraordinary!
