"Let the Chips Fall" - above - this piece sold during this year's Open Studios, but seemed to express how the last month felt.
Okay - the lesson learned from this past month as been all about "letting go". After having my laptop hard drive crash, along with my backup disk becoming a boat anchor at approximately the same time, I lost a LOT of data. While I was able to recover some of the data, I didn't get it all.
One of the things I lost was ALL my artwork from the entire year.
So, I could download lower resolution images from FaceBook photos, and from my website image content, I did lose all the preliminary drawings I use in creating final images, as well as those works finalized and "ready to print".
I am looking forward to beginning a new year, hopefully inspired by a fresh start.
