A belated Happy New Year to all! Last year, I began my own New Year’s tradition. I started the year by doing something I wanted to practice throughout the year: paint. Last year, I did a plein air painting. For 2015, I started the year off with a studio painting. View from the Jetty was done from a photograph of Cinque Terre. I’ve never been, but hope to go someday. I had fun painting the boats and reflections in the water.
