This is the completed version of a painting I posted earlier. Among my many New Year's resolutions, I intend to paint more often and to improve my drawing skills in my Thursday morning portrait drawing classes. I resolve to devote Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to painting in the studio. I also resolve to spend more quality time with family and friends. I'm looking forward to 2012 and all the adventures and excitement ahead. I wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year, filled with great art, great music and love.
