Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Whether you’re into Christmas and the holiday season or not, you’ve got to admit the lights are pretty fabulous. The ugliest of venues becomes a dazzling site, come nighttime. Trees and snow (if you are lucky enough to have it) glow and all seems right with the world.

Last weekend we visited a little vodka distillery in Boulder, CO called the 303. Perhaps it was the vodka in me, but I was taken by the loveliness of the place, as the room filled with a warm glow from the many strands of lights. We chatted with friends, toasted to a happy birthday, and I took solace in the fact that while there are things that are wrong with the world, there are many, many more that are right.
