One of my New Year’s Resolutions this year is to draw/sketch everyday. Artists/Illustrators follow this practice to keep ideas flowing and to constantly develop their technique. I started January 1st and have seen a vast improvement in my personal technique/style.
Come out today for the Artist Talk/Opening Day at the Children’s Resource Center – New Orleans Public Library. The Art of Chanel Christoff Davis will be on display at 913 Napoleon Avenue NOLA the entire month of February. Closing day is February 28th. Come out to see me NOLA today….I hope to see you there! For details call 504.596.2628. New Orleans Public Library
The price of stamps are going up again. The planned 3-cent rate hike is the largest rate hike in 10 years. Starting Monday the US first class rate to mail a letter will be 49cents. My personal fave is the Modern Art series, of course. I will be stocking up online: The Postal Store
Have you ever watched a child playing? They are always in such a state of pure “JOY”. As we get older experiencing “JOY” is much harder without being intentional. Let us all enjoy the miracles of this season, truly focus on our blessings, and strive to experience pure “JOY” this holiday. Until we meet again in 2014, be blessed and Merry Christmas!
“I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” (Luke 2:10, NIV)
