2012 Dreams and Schemes

Here are my  hopes, plans, goals, dreams and schemes for 2012.  I hope I have the courage to make my dreams comes true....

My first painting for 2012.

Pink Confetti Trees 2  Acrylic on Canvas 20x30"

Online Courses - I love doing these as they are so much fun, great communities and they require discipline and committment.

- Life Book 2012
- Creative Colour Challenge
Traci Bautista's Doodle's Unleashed workshop

- I'd like to do Flora Bowley's Brave Intuitive You e-course too

Art workshops - I've enrolled with local artist Neil Elliot to do his mixed media/abstract workshop which starts at the end of January.

- Overseas - I'd love to travel to the States and do some workshops there, meet some of my online arty friends, go to New York to the galleries and museums and shops and Broadway.

- Squam Art Workshops - which are mid-Sept in New Hampshire, USA - would be awesome.
- Sweet Freedom Retreats - which are mid-Oct.


30x30x30 Challenge - which exhibits mid-Sept - same weekend as the Squam workshops.
Group exhibition - has been cancelled - so I'm doing a wait and see on this...
Solo - ????

Personally - planning my Silver/25th Wedding Anniversary Party for December.
- to help my sons through Uni, to continue to teach them how to cook and clean for themselves.

Healthwise - lose 10 kilos - eat healthily, walk 3 times a week and circuit 2 times.

I'll be back in a couple of days with my Word for 2012.


  1. Wow that's a lot of goals! I'm thinking of taking Flora's ecourse too. Good luck!

  2. Michelle, I am in love with your trees. I a, inspired to save my money up so I can buy an original and pay for shipping to the US. :) congrats on your goals and I wish you all the best in 2012.
