Welcome 2010

Welcome 2010 and goodbye to 2009. I hope you all had a great holiday and are rested and ready for a new year. I had a lovely holiday, ate too much, did a lot of visiting and completely enjoyed the whole season.

Now it's time to get back to work and face the bare canvas, which I did and of course hit a blank wall. So I started sketching anything and every thing to get back into the groove. It really doesn’t matter what I draw, but just basically sit down and draw anything in the room to get it down on paper. The first couple come out a little rough, but it gets your eye and hand working together again. And while I was sketching I also did this little illustration. I enjoy doing these and they get put aside for future Christmas cards. Once again I'd like to wish Happy New Year to everyone, and I hope the coming year is full of joy for you and those you love.

Happy New year to you too. This is gorgeous! So much expression. You are a wonderful illustrator. I agree, keep drawing, it doesn't matter what or how it turns out. its all practice and you are actually connecting with the paper. Kay

Hi Jennifer - Thanks for stopping by, our gardens may be resting now but just think in 3 months we will be planting again.

Happy New Year Kay - These little illustrations get me going again. I even managed to clean around my drawing table.

A very Happy New Year to you too Holly. It always takes a little time to get back into the swing after a break but your snowman illustration is really lovely. It would make a beautiful Christmas card. If I am searching for inspiration I look back through my sketchbooks and look at old things with new eyes and often find that something that didn't work then, works now with a little tweaking.
