I hope that 2016 is a year when you get surprised – by yourself! Yes, that you surprise yourself. That you try something new, or try something old with a new boldness. That you surprise yourself by not caring as much if you fail at something because it means you tried something in a new way. Life is short. Only you can make it an adventure. Painting: “New Thoughts” by Cheryl O – acrylic collage with 22k gold foil and stone. Will be available at Westland Gallery preview show in January 2016.
