"Strained" if you'd like and you'll see that this time of year is not my favorite but it's my own fault. I always feel out of control. Last year, I made plans to do a better job of being organized about the holidays but obviously that didn't happen. I just don't think I have it in me to get things done in a timely manner and that causes STRESS.
Phew....now it's over for another year. I know those of you that love Christmas think I'm crazy but I'm really happy that we can get on to the new year. I'll make the same resolution to be more organized and we'll see what the outcome is for 2012. Who knows, if I get everything done ahead of time for the holidays next year, Christmas may become my favorite holiday.
This is a watercolor with bits of acrylic which I had to use (the white) because it was getting so dark. It sure was liberating to throw all of that paint though.
