Should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot? I Think Not!

As another year comes to a close, we are urged to reflect on ourselves and clean house, both inside and out. You know how it goes - out with the old, in with the new. But should we always follow the creed of Auld Lang Syne? Perhaps not all old (or auld) acquaintances should be forgotten, because from those contacts can spring something new and beautiful, inspiring on its own.

Just as I have drawn inspiration from powerful feminine political figures and heraldry of medieval times, so too have I looked toward fellow artists for my latest drive. Those of you familiar with my blog know my affinity for, the innovative online platform for artists and art lovers alike to buy, sell, inform, and discuss. I often find myself browsing the site to kickstart my creative juices and find motivation for my baubles in other media. Below are some of my recent translations.
