Happy New Year

I know that many of you have visited my blog silently in last few months asking yourself where are my new posts. It was my wish to return as soon as possible but many changes took place in a last quarter of the, now old, 2009 that has absorbed all of my time usually dedicated to art. That process is far from being over but I will try to do much better in combining my desires and obligations from now on. In that spirit I want to wish all of you very happy and prosperous New Year. I want you to grab the opportunity when it arises and spread your wings to soar into new heights.
I have created this piece for the Fourth Issue of Altered Bits Zine themed : Notorious. It was created while listening to the Carrol Of The Birds By Mormon Tabernacle( my latest carol addiction a splendid old Andalusian song). Link here is for the UCLA Madrigal Singers since I could not find Mormons performance on YouTube.
This artwork is now in a permanent collection of my son whose awe was expressed with a two minute jaw dropping silence ( you can't ask for a higher price).
I also want to contribute it to a Theme Thursdays challenge : Flying and Wednesday Stamper: Open challenge.

I love this piece. The colours are stunning and the collage is beautiful. Nice to meet you online - I popped by from another online friends link.
I hope things are getting better for you and that 2010 is a great year. 2009 didn't bring me much luck, and took away my Mum :( So here's hoping it's better for everyone!
