This looks like the beginnings of a new year's resolution list. Great art, great quote.

Love that quote!

I read another one, one day:
"Jump and the net will appear!"
Have a great day!

I love the grid pattern at the top of this piece. It reminds me of a portculis. Very apt to the sentiment.

Bill Evertson said...

Nice quote and the art does have a built presence.

Lisa said...

Another wonderful work of art. I hope you continue creating more in this style.

Ange said...

Now THAT is my kinda quote! Happy New Year to you too. PS - i'll be doing a give away sometime over the next day or so so pop back when you get a moment. It involves quotes...

To bad a jpg is just not capable of revealing all the materials you used in its creation.

The quote and artwork is a wonderful thing to view and contemplate upon as we face a new year and a new decade.

Thank you for sharing and all the very best for 2010

I can't sleep, I'm having trouble with my current work, and feel totally frustrated. Opening this post makes me feel much better. In the morning I will 'take a chance' and start looking for the wings as I go! Thanks Seth!
