Happy New Year!

Hoping you all had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family.

We celebrated here in Philly with our daughter and family and our wonderful grandchildren. Christmas morning we headed to Brooklyn to celebrate Christmas and a belated Hanukkah with our son and daughter in law.

New Years was a blast at the World Cafe Live! We enjoyed the amazing music of PhlillyBloco and Open Hand. 

Last year I started a daily art project on Instagram. I used the hashtag #365dayscreatingart. It was great that many of you joined me and now we have a large body of work posted with that hashtag!

My word for 2018 is “Determined”. 

I am again committing myself to another year of #365dayscreatingart. It’s a daily art project on Instagram. I kinda fell off the wagon for a bit in 2017, but no falling off in 2018!! To help, I am going to number my work with the day – 1/365… and post it using the following hashtags: #365dayscreatingart #draw365 #365project #dailypainting #dailyart.

Who will join me? At the end of 2018, I envision a gallery with a collection of all of our work.

To start my series off, I am revisiting a theme that continually inspires me, music. And, of course, my dad, Miguel Ficher, a violinist and lover of music, will occasionally be included in this developing body of work. I hope you enjoy it and will join me.

Unfortunately, it has been too cold to work in my studio during this first week of January, but I have been using the many tools I have at home to begin creating. Here is my growing daily collection so far!


“Music Above” Mixed media, collage, acrylics, gouache. 15×20


“I hear the sound” Mixed media, collage, watercolors, acrylics, pen on watercolor paper. 5×5
