way to express my gratitude for your support and enthusiasm. My first year as a full-time artist is coming to a close.
All I can say is wow. Thank You. It’s been an amazing year here at Diane Wallace Studios. From my first solo show to my first portrait commission. Shake in an invitational show, a few awards, lots of commissions, good sales and great students and you’ve got the fixings for a happy cocktail.
I am forever in your debt. Yes, that means YOU.
So for those of you still trying to decide what you want to be when you grow up, I send along these words. Taped above my art desk in the studio, they have inspired a year of dreams come true:
“Dream freely. Envision excellence. Cherish your creations. Exude enthusiasm. Be inspired. Inspire others. Take pride in you. Recognize inner beauty. Draw on inner strength. Look inside your soul. Create peace. Seek truth. Spread joy. Embark on adventure. Launch new ideas. Think big. Invoke positives. Live fully. Reach out. Aim high. Find happiness. Expect the best. Be the best. Believe in yourself.” – Jan Michelsen
It’s the time of year to believe, to rekindle cherished dreams. Wishing all a wonderful Christmas and holiday season and a New Year that finds you holding your dreams in the highest regard.
Blessings to all.
