t's a New Year,2008, and I have painted daily, and often nightly, throughout much of the former year. Finding my own style was my Number one goal, and then making it as much my own as the signature of my name. I am closer to my goal, but not close enough for this artist, not by a long shot. I hope to bring fresh new challenging work in the coming months, and I have you as I my witness. Julianne Richards "the Colorspeaker
The year 2007 has started off with the fury of creativity, and painting has become a daily, hourly, central focus in my creation of Art. I hope to bring forth my best work thus far, and I am up for challenge. Thank you to everyone who has supported me, purchased my art, and given words of encouragment. It shows, and I will respond in the making of new and focused paintings.
