Hats of the Horoscope Calendar by Cindy Adelle Richard
I finished my 2019 Hats of the Horoscope calendar just before Christmas, but I am just getting around to sharing the news. I also wanted to provide a little background about the inspiration behind the calendar. In case you had not noticed, I have a thing for hats. I have been collecting images of hats for years on Pinterest and I am known to regularly sport hats whenever I get the chance. I am also fascinated by natal astrology (the one that based on calculating our exact birth dates, times, and locations to provide us with snapshots of our whole life). I combined the two in order to create something unique, and I am thrilled with the results! To keep things manageable, I decided to pick out hats that match one particular personality trait from each of the signs and to depict it in the color denoted for each sign. I included the interpretations below so you will be able to see what each one means.

Remembering Roses Watercolor Painting by Cindy Adelle Richard
I have started creating mini-stories and poems inspired by my paintings. Here is the poem for this painting:
Remembering Roses by Cindy Adelle Richard
A morning walk ripe with dew
shards of light reflecting you
butterflies swirling matching your pace
roses shimmering caressing your face
Nature’s canvas framed just for you
etched in your memory like cellular glue
love in your heart nothing to fear
enjoying the magic we all hold dear.
I hope you enjoyed my little poem. This painting is now available in my Etsy shop as well adellecirca1920.etsy.com
I completed a project that I feel pretty good about called the Jazz Age Style Alphabet. I completed an original watercolor painting and used a calligraphy letter for each one. I thought I might feel pressure or get bored with it, but I liked how much structure it provided in terms of selecting images to focus on for my work. An added bonus for this project was that I learned some things I did not know about some of the people, places, or objects I chose. If you are looking for a great project related to a theme you love, I highly recommend doing an alphabet project and challenging yourself to find unique content. I posted the entire alphabet below – I hope you enjoy it!
