New Beginnings

Gone is the noise & visual clutter of commercial Christmas.
It's my time for clearing, for new beginnings.
Sweeping away the old makes room for the new.
 No soothing, white January snow yet this year, 
but I see & feel fresh, unmarked whiteness everywhere.
It soothes me, calls to me, in a more peaceful way
than all those December colors.

Happy New Year, Dear Friends.


  1. OOOO, love this Rita. Beautiful thoughts put into words. Happy New Year!

  2. I would love to have this blank ..can I do it over..start anew..canvas chance in my life.
    Can you market it plse...I am in.
    Happy New Year dear Rita.

  3. I like this idea of a new white page to write on !
    Like you , as soon as celebrations are over , I need a decluttering , cleaning time , to renew things and places .I need empty spaces , fresh mind .
    I wish you a Happy New Year , full of art and creativity !
    Hugs !

  4. Niech ta pusta kartka zapełni się samymi szczęśliwymi zdarzeniami w 2015 roku!

  5. I am bringing you a new sketchbook today filled with whiteness!!

  6. Lovely post. Unfortunately December in commercially overdone in both music and visuals. Wonderful now that you can renew with the new year. Like your post's white box -- a symbol of your fresh start again. Look forward to all your uplifting artwork in 2015. -- barbara

  7. Perfecto! The challenge and the freedom of the white space . . . xxxx

  8. Ah, just the kind of fresh start I like! Happy New Year! :)

  9. Happy New Year. I am sure it won't be long before all of the white paper is filled with your words, sketches and dreams.

  10. That is exactly what I'm looking at, I'm always thinking about a painting a day , but never seem to keep it up ! We are already at day 5 of the new year , and I haven't started. Maybe tomorrow !!

  11. Gotta say, I have weaknesses. One: I do so love the 'clutter' of all the holiday happenings and decor. Just let it all start not before Dec. 1.

  12. Excellent! Fresh and unmarked white! :). Happy 2015 to you also.


Thank you for your comments! They mean a lot to me!
