Indie Fixx is coordinating a fundraiser benefiting victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Indie designers have donated items to be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to the Red Cross International Response Fund. I have donated both a print and a smitten necklace (see below). You can bid on one or both here. Learn more about the fundraiser here. I'll include lots of extra goodies for the generous winners!!

Santa brought my 7 year old an electric guitar for Christmas. He's been asking for 2 years now, and he was just thrilled when he opened it. He's been playing it everyday, so I thought it would be the perfect subject for inspiration today (plus it would give me n excuse to get it away from him for a few moments). I focused on the details rather than the whole and played with the lighting to make it a bit more dark. Rock stars are dark, so I thought it was fitting. Kyle has now informed me that I need to get him a leather jackets because all rockers wear leather jackets. I think Santa has created a monster (or at least a badass rocker)! Here are the pics that made the final cut:

First, I'd like to wish all my readers a Happy 2010!! May it be a creative year for all of us and may we share a bit of it together! My 2010 is all about reorganizing, restructuring and refocusing, so hopefully that will help me improve both the frequency and content of the blog. I'd like it to be a bit more interactive, but I know that takes work and steady posting, so I'll work on my part, and I encourage readers to start posting links to their artwork and their inspirations. I'm thinking about a monthly challenge too! Don't forget that there is also a Flick group: Daily Art Inspiration where you can get and share inspiration.
Here's what I've been up to over the last couple of weeks. Most of my time was spent hanging with my family. I needed a break and didn't even take that many photos. I felt like I needed to just focus on them for a while and rely on my mind to save the memories and not my camera. Here are the boys showing off their handmade New Year's Glasses:
I finally felt like taking some pics yesterday, so I had a "Photoshoot" with some candy canes. Apparently my mind is already thinking towards Valentine's Day:
And some major fun in the snow (a whole 2 feet of it)!
Happy New Year!! I look forward to sharing it with you!!
