January is an internal time; a time to think, to dream and wonder; to read and work; a time to watch the sunrise moving north day by day. A time to eat breakfast in front of the fireplace and watch the early morning light spreading farther and farther into the room. Soon it will reach the far wall. It's a time to stand in the studio with the sun casting light and shadow over the work. A time to work with the sunlight warming me, a harbinger of what is to come.
