Our postal workers and UPS and FedEx folks have been busy on our street, and this morning early, when Sweetie looked outside, there was a package already on the front stoop (too small to call it a porch by any means).  The package, from Lulu.com, is Pam Johnson Brickell's new 2012 calendar I bought!  It is sooo cool and sooo pretty and I already have put up lots of things for the new year on the coming months and it's hanging on the wall in the computer room so I can look at it any time I'm on the desktop.

Thanks, Pam, for sharing your creativity with us and letting us have a little piece of your artwork every month for 2012. 

If you haven't received that perfect artsy calendar yet, you might pop over to Pam's blog and find info on ordering this one.

<<<--- This is the front cover.

<<<--- And here is January - isn't it lovely?  Lots of information about Pam's painting and where, when, etc. as well as what she saw on her walk that day.  Full moon listings are printed for each month, as well as special astronomical events like the Lyrids Meteor Shower.

Sorry I've been absent for a few days.  I'm not painting right now and life has gotten a bit busy - you know how it is this time of year with shopping, wrapping, sending cards, making plans, attending holiday gatherings.  I hope to have something new soon as I continue studying the wet-in-wet technique.

It is very bonny and fresh looking Rhonda, January looks especially nice. Thanks for sharing.

You are a sweetie, Rhonda!! Thank you so for the plug :) I'm honored that you love it and that the calendar is hanging where you'll enjoy it daily!

A lovely calendar indeed! Hope you have a most joyous Christmas, Rhonda!

You're welcome, Caroline. I love the word "bonny".

Pam, you are very welcome. I will enjoy every new month and made myself not look through the whole calendar so I'll be surprised!

Thanks, Sherry. You, too, have a wonderful Christmas and New Year!

What a beautiful calendar! One of the nicest I've seen. Thanks for sharing that.
AND getting that dish right is HARD.
I have found that there are some formulas you can use to get the "wheels and disks" in your painting right.
I'll see if I can locate one.

Thanks, Ginny. The calendar is a good one and I'm looking forward to January to start showing it off on the wall :) Jeanette had a good idea of drawing a box around the plate and then drawing the plate ellipse in using that as a guide. I'm going to try that.

Such discipline not to peek.... you wonder woman, you :)
