Well, I make a pact with Rose, my art angel that in the lovely year 2008 we will first, show our work more consistently on our blog and secondly, we need to transform ourselves from art-material collectors to artists who use up their art-materials. I hope you join along by checking out my blog frequently. The picture below show how Iris gets excited with the colorful unwrapped balloon in our neighbor new year party. I think she got the excited-by-color gene from me. Who wouldn't?
