January is my favourite month of the year. The cold, crisp weather makes me feel alive and fills me with energy. This translates to optimal focus and ambition for getting things done. So far this month I've journalled almost every work day. This has helped me identify a few themes for early 2015, along with strategies to make them a reality. From these I've made lots of weekly and daily to do lists that I take great joy in tackling. Over the course of my career, I've noticed that when I'm researching a new series, to do lists are detrimental. When I'm in a completion phase, they are essential. I found these stripes during a recent visit to the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Do you know what they are?
