Years ago, I stumbled across a wonderful book filled with gorgeous animal art and funny sayings. For whatever reason, I put the book back on the shelf and did not purchase it that day. A week or two later, I went back to the store, hoping to purchase it, but couldn't find it and like a knucklehead, I hadn't written down the name of the artist, or the title of the book!

I thought about this wonderful artist on and off through the years, and recently set an intention to find her and her book. Would you believe a good friend of mine sent me an email forward yesterday and there was this woman's art??? Not only that, but her name was right across the top of the email! Now usually when you get an email forward that contains photos or artwork, it doesn't normally contain the name of the artist. But there it was, plain as day!! After all these years, it took three days after I set my intention to find this artist. :-) So let me introduce her to you.

Her name is Jane Seabrook and she works in watercolors. Her books depict realistic portraits of birds, and assorted animals whose expressions or poses fit the funny or thought-provoking quotes that accompany them.

Doesn't this gorgeous owl look like he could be saying, "DO I LOOK LIKE I CARE?" LOL Check out her work. It's phenomenal!

~ The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months! ~
Edward Payson Powell

~We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~ 
Edith Lovejoy Pierce

The old year is gone, its triumphs celebrated and its disappointments mourned. Time to move on to the exciting possibilities of a new year. Just like a brand new journal filled with blank pages, the new year is waiting for us to write our dreams upon it. 

I don't believe in making resolutions, but I do believe in writing down my intentions for this new year. When I do that, it's always amazing to look back and see how many things actually do come to pass. 

Here's wishing you all an abundance of love, health, happiness, and success in everything you do in the new year. :o) xo
