I finished this iPad drawing today that I started on New Year’s Eve, so I could
wish everyone a Happy New Year, and continue the reality of our need to
wear masks.

What I like about the iPad drawings is that I draw with my finger. which
reminds me of my first attempts at art back in kindergarten when everything
 seemed so delightfully fresh, and always possible. Thank you Mrs. Jordan,
you were a great teacher, and you're probably why I am an artist today.

After the overwhelming sad feelings of 2020, any return to creativity feels
wonderful. I also worked on a more finished drawing today, which I may
show to you soon Meanwhile it is still time for celebration and Happy,
Happy New Year!Thank you so much for everything you’ve posted in the past
year on your blogs, Facebook, and Instagram. You lifted my spirits, educated me,
made me understand more, made me laugh, and inspired beyond compare. Plus
you made me feel like yes we really are going to make it to the end of this
pandemic into a new future. Thank you
