It is that time of year again when we start to plan our resolutions for the upcoming new Year. Honestly, I have never been so ready to say good bye to the past year as I am to 2009. Like so many families.. we struggle with the battered economy and job lay offs... but the heaviest to bear is the loss of my father..I miss him more than words can say.
So I say - Bring on the new year! I am ready. My new year resolutions are going to be a great focus for me. They are commitments that are completely in my control. When followed through..they will bring happiness, better health, and the sense of accomplishment.
Resolution #1 - Better health and exercise..(I make this one every year lol) When I work out and exercise I always feel better.. That truly makes me happy... So back to that!
Resolution #2 - Go out with friends more- Because I love my job .. it is very very easy for me to get quite wrapped up in projects and dead lines. Now some things will never change - lol, but I will definitely make more time for my friends and to laugh alot! This includes my best friend - my hubby Mike. He is awesome and we always have so much fun together.
Resolution #3 - Okay.. this is my least favorite.. but I vow I am going to clean my house on a much more regular basis. It makes me happy when all is clean, but I often face the challenge... hmmm... should I tackle the pile of laundry in the corner or paint some snowmen..hmmm.. Well we shall see how this one goes :)
I am looking forward to being back to a bit of my own routine now. These past few months have not been about me or my work. It was all about my dad..I was able to spend what is now some of the most treasured times of my life with him. He is with me in my heart and always.

I hope everyone enjoys this holiday season with friends
and family. Hold them all tight!

Winters blessings

Here is the first of a new collection ..... I am working with my all time favorite theme...... yep its SNOWMEN!! I just love snowmen! They are just so fun to paint.. with their hats, sweaters, mittens, all the way down to their buttons! Its funny with snowmen.. even though they are made of the cold freezing snow... they can convey such warm hearted expressions. Winter will certainly be here soon enough if not already for some...and much more to do... I better get busy on creating some new friends for this guy and hmmm, I am thinking a nice cup of hot chocolate as well - now that is a winter blessing :)

Brand new to blogging!

Well at the gentle "ahem" nudging of some wonderful friends.. I now have started a blog. My name is Shelly Comiskey and I am an artist and mom. I work from my home and feel blessed everyday that I do what I do. Whether I start with a blank piece of paper and pencil, paint and paintbrush, digital illustrating, or even starting with just a ball of clay - I just love the feeling of creating something from nothing. Through art, I have met some of my dearest and closest friends.
I look forward to this new venture and my hope for this blog is to keep in touch with friends and meet lots of new people as well! I will be posting new art, new happenings, fun thoughts, and who knows what else LOL.. Thanks for stopping by!
Shelly :)
