Top 10 List for 2014

Well, as the year draws to a close I find myself thinking on the last 12 months. It's been a difficult year for many people I love. For some I wish I could turn back the clock, for others I wish I could speed it up. This is life. 
I browsed some quotes regarding New Years and here are two I'd like to share:
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves. ~Bill Vaughan
And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast,
And been bow'd to the earth by its fury;
To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd
Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury -
Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.
~Thomas Hood
And now it is time for my annual Top 10 list. These are my favourite paintings from the past year. A very sincere thank you to everyone reading this and for the comments you may leave throughout the year. It means so much and keeps me going. I truly wish you a warm, secure, exciting 2015.
