Happy Roman New Year!

Home Sweet Home -- Longing for Winter's End           ©Andrea Hathaway
In ancient Rome, New Year's was celebrated on March 1st. Their 10 month calender ended in December and the two months we know as January and February were known as the Monthless Period. A time when nothing grew and families stayed close to their cozy hearth and home. So, on this, the ancient day of starting anew, I choose to renew my commitment to this blog and to making new art to showcase here. Expect new things coming soon!
