Hi there, how are you?

Christmas has come and gone in a heartbeat as it does and now everyone is racing around getting ready for New Year, phew!

Not a lot of arting happening here at the moment except for a brief moment of I need to draw hares?

Brains are weird right, so here are some hares to take us bounding into 2020.

I can’t believe we’re into another decade already, wow. Where does the time go!

Over on instagram I did the best nine thing again I always find the results fascinating.

Five are from the Victoria Johnson and bonnie Christine classes I had taken in November and December. Fennel painted from a class by Jean Lurssen. The little sparrow in the middle, love a sparrow. Magpies from waay back in January and top prize goes to a cyclamen I had forgotten even drawing, again in January.

No inktobers at all, *sad face*.

Algorithms aside here are a few of my favourites (in no particular order) from this year, none of which made it into the top nine but hey, they made me happy and that’s the point of doing them in the first place I think.

Well 2020 beckons; I wish you health, love and happiness. I hope we all go out and experiment, play and learn stuff.

My main wish is that there will be more kindness in the coming year, divisions are healed and the world becomes a friendlier place to live in once more.

I would like to thank each and every person that has visited (for however short a time), liked or commented, you’re encouraging and kind words are always appreciated. Thank you.

Onward to the New Year ❤

Christmas Roses And A Happy New Year

Some small sketches drawn of Christmas rose flowers as they came into bloom.

Hi there, hope every one enjoyed the holidays.

This year I received a Christmas rose from mum. She has great faith that one day one of the plants she gives me will make it though the year, so far this has not been the case. This one however will be planted out in the garden in a week or so, when the tree finally comes down, so you never know this could be the year!

I’ve been drawing the flowers as they bloom because I’d like to capture some memory of it before the inevitable happens.

It doesn’t show up too well through the computer because they are white flowers on white paper and the pencil marks don’t seem to show up well when I scan them.

I’m going to have a few more goes at this, they are beautiful flowers and I would really like to try and do them justice.

We’re at the end of the year now, waving good-bye to 2016 and hello to 2017. I would like to wish you all the very best of years to come, I hope it’s a good year filled with love laughter and kindness.

Take care, till next time, Happy New Year x


Happy New Year 2016

Happy New Year 2016Happy new year!

I’m not doing look backs of what I did. I did stuff and some of it is here (if I liked it) the rest was a learning experience that taught me stuff about tools, materials or techniques.

I’m also not doing new years resolutions. That’s just setting me up to fail so I’m going to keep on doing what I do hopefully learning lots along the way.

I wish you good health, joy and kindness in 2016
Love and peace.

I would like to thank any one that came and read my little ramblings this year and all new followers. thanks for liking or commenting and in general for just being there.

Thankyou. Till next time, have fun xxx
