Happy New Year to Tull fans everywhere, and thank you to Charlie, Pat, and Erin for their hard work as the Jethro Tull Group, and for their input into the ongoing series of fantastic Jethro Tull reissue boxed sets. It is good to see that Warner Brothers gives you all a name check in the credits of said sets!
2015 was good to me, particularly in the second half of the year. My Tull highlights were finally seeing "The Witch's Promise" live on Ian's tour (instrumentally it was great, even if half the vocals came from the virtual guests) and rediscovering the "Too Old to Rock'n'Roll" album through Steven Wilson's remixes. It will never be one of my top Tull albums, but the remixes have removed it from the bottom of the pile and I have been listening to it a lot.
Personally, my artistic pursuits have flourished in the past few months. I have received a lot of positive feedback on my drawings through local exhibits, and, while I know I will never be in the Louvre, my "quirky style" (my words) has found a small but appreciative audience, and I am quite proud of that. I have also been asked to be one of three Assistant Curators at one of the local galleries - a volunteer position, but one that brings me into contact with more artists and art appreciators. So, it's all good!
I hope you all had a good 2015, and who knows what 2016 will bring?
Happy New Year to you and thanks for your participation here also. Best of luck with your art. You are very talented.
Thanks, Erin. That's very kind of you to say. Some people like my stuff, and some don't, but I'm okay with that! Hopefully you had a great New Year's and are poised to make 2016 very special. You are always very respectful and classy in your posts, even when we disagree! Thank you for that, as well.
Regards and respect, David
