First Light

I am a little hesitant to start a project at the beginning of the year, in fear that I might not keep up with it. In fact, right now, I am blogging as my mother is telling me how late we are going to be for a party tonight. However, I am determined to do this. I had a rough 2009 and I am trying to ring in the new year optimistically and proactively.

Hello. I am Nella. I am in the healing process of a failed relationship, a college student whose diploma is a few years overdue, and a refugee of retail employment. They previous year brought on a few slightly unwelcomed changes in my life and this year, I am going to take it upon myself to steer it in to a different direction. I am going to make this year a happy one, and not rely on external forces to make it a good year. Last year, as an attempt to stimulate creativity, I started a project called 365 Days of Art, in which I did a pieace of art daily. Due to my flaky nature, I barely completed a month's work of art. This year, I WILL complete this project, along a few other resolutions in hopes of making changes in myself for the better (which I will share with you all in the next post, when I am not in a rush).

Now, before I start sounding like a dishonest politician making empty promises, I leave you with this year's first art of the day:

Yes, I'm a little vain, but there is also a reason why I did a self-portrait for my first 2010 Art of the Day. I wanted to enter the year positively and what better way to do it than to paint a picture of what it is I want to be?
