I don't know what January is like in your neck of the woods, but here in Portland we get a lot of gray, chilly and rainy days. It tends to get me down and I'm not particularly creative or energetic when I'm down. Add to that the post holiday blahs...all the excitement, events and bazaars are over, so what do I need to create? It's a time to force myself to take a walk with the dogs, eat healthier food and get into the studio even if I have no plan or event to prepare for. What is January like for you?
