2019: A Retrospective

So, this is the year I turned 40, and the year is almost over, and so is the decade... no pressure at all! To be honest, I don't feel like I have accomplished much this year, but looking back, I did have some really good experiences.

I saw many beautiful things at the Gold Coast Art Fair and the 57th Street Art Fair.

I made my first circular painting.

I made another round painting.

I gave myself a raise.

And I wrote a few rants about my ever-increasing frustration with social media, as well as a post about Wayfair's lack of ethics. I sold two of my paintings this year: Infra-Pink Inferno and Cosmic Ocean.

So perhaps this year wasn't that unproductive after all. I don't do resolutions, goal-setting, vision boards or intentions anymore and have no desire to make grand plans or pronouncements for 2020 or the years that follow in the new decade. Taking things a day at a time works better for me. I don't want to overwhelm myself or set myself up for failure. There are a few things I really want to do next year and I'm hoping that I will be able to afford to do them, hopefully with income from art and interior design and writing. Whatever happens, I plan to blog about it and also include it in my next art book. See you in 2020.

Mood Board Monday: a colorful mosaic bathroom

For the last Mood Board Monday of the year, I finally did a bathroom design since I hadn't done any yet. I designed this bathroom around an amazing vanity that I found that has a floral mosaic design on the front. I chose recycled glass terrazzo for the floor and a mirror with a mosaic border and a glass vessel sink.

Mood Board Monday: a bright citrus kitchen

Bright, bold, retro colors for everything from the appliances to the dishes and pots give this kitchen concept a mod twist. Shades of lemon, lime, and orange make it an energetic place to cook or just enjoy a nice cold glass of lemonade.

The artwork is by Sharon Foster.

Mood Board Monday: a neon pastel bedroom

The color scheme is a contradiction, a soft blend of neon and pastel colors. The shapes are minimalist but rounded and soothing.

Mood Board Monday: a red hot kitchen

This kitchen has a post-modern flair, red appliances, black cabinets, recycled glass terrazzo counters, and a mosaic backsplash.
