Happy 2009.! Its a New Year.!

When I used to think of 2000 anything .. it was so ‘futuristic’ .. a SciFi sort of feeling. Now here we are 2009 … hoping the economy will turn around, the financial situation has been the worst ever in the history of this country, I pray the wars will end, our soldiers home safe.

SunRose is going into our 11th year .. it feels like just yesterday that I was starting out. Only a few oils .. learning .. and playing and learning some more. The evolution over the years was slow and steady, adding more materials as time went on. Formulating products when the need arose for myself, family, friends, clients.

It has been a wonderful and exciting journey. Many thanks to all that have be supportive of my work. And a special thanks to Sheila Concepcion & Johanna Tramo the SunRose Staff .. they make all things possible.

Quotes for January :

‘ Winter is an etching,
Spring is a watercolor,
Summer an oil painting,
and Autumn a mosaic of them all.’

Think in the morning,
Act in the noon,
Eat in the evening,
Sleep in the night.
In seed time learn, in harvest teach,
in winter .. enjoy.’

‘The bad news is .. time flies.
The good news is .. you’re the pilot.’
