What can be said in New Years rhymes?
That has not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go
we know we dream we dream we know
We rise up laughing with the light
we lie down weeping with the night
we hug the world until it stings
we curse it then and sigh for wings
we live, we love, we woo, we wed
we wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead
we laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear
and thats the burden of a year
I love the fabric that the green monster is made with. The piece is a reminder to me to keep jealousy at bay

Giclees of this original painting; Girl Looking Askance, are now posted to my etsy shop.

Well, its that time of year again. The time of peace and joy and love. hahahah, yeah tell that to the people in the mall parking lots! Lighten things up with a little bit of humor:
I’m listing prints and cards of this piece on etsy. I will be giving only homemade and handmade this year. Maybe gift cards. ie, staying OUT of the malls. Anyway, here in Ojai, there are no malls! love that.
On a nicer note, from last years design I am selling this print and cards on etsy: The Girl Who Swallowed a Tree
