2012 The Art Odyssey

Hi Everyone,

Another year has flown past!!  And we find ourselves renewed again, starting over with a clean slate or blank canvas:))  I'm thrilled that we start over each year it gives me the opportunity to reset goals and evaluate the past year.  I'm very optimistic for the coming year!  My wish for you in 2012 is that you are inspired, motivated and have a masterfully creative year and in the words of Tim Gunn "Make It Work"! :))

For today's post I thought I would share a retrospective of some of my work for 2011.

Pumpkin Pie

  2. a jaw dropping, majestic collection or works! i am so looking forward to whatever happens when you touch your brush to paper in the coming year. thank you so much for sharing your incredible work and lovely self with us all.

  3. As I scrolled down through these, I'd say to myself, "Oh, that's my favorite," then I'd see another and change my mind and say, "How did she do that?" and going on, I'd find another favorite and I've decided I'm just going to crown you Queen of Texture, whether it's the perfect look of the glass of milk or the cut glass shine of the crystal and ball jars, you are it! So now you can put that behind your signature: Carrie Waller, QT :)

  4. What an AWESOME sight Carrie!! You have accomplished SO much in just one year. Wow. That's awesome. I can't choose a favorite, they are all my favorite!! :)
