I'm not generally prone to making resolutions for the new year, as that sounds a bit too formative and absolute. So, I tend to think more of goals I'd like to try and achieve throughout the year, based on the direction(s) I'd like to see my art go, and areas that I feel could stand improvement (well, that would be everything, actually). I have some ideas orbiting around in my head, and one of my goals is to actually make those a reality instead of a mere idea. We'll see.
In the meantime, here is today's painting. Another one of those "ordinary" scenes, with snow, blue shadows and yep - dead grasses. Bonus: getting to paint ice on the stream.

However, due to the amazing weather we've been having lately, a trip is planned tomorrow...and I am hoping a plein air painting will be forthcoming.
