a sketchy new year

I thrive on the optimism of a brand new year and I usually have quite the detailed list made out for what I hope to do. I am a little late to the party this year due to some crazy cold/flu thing that knocked me out for a week right after Christmas, but I am catching up. I did manage to stitch up a few oak leaves, which has stirred up a lot of leafy ideas again.
I am going to draw for a few weeks to get some ideas onto paper - more likely to make it onto a cloth if I can work a few things out in the book first. There are a lot of things swirling around and I hope to pin them down before they get away from me. I will also work on a bit of a list for a brand new year as I go.

Cheers! to 2015.

  1. Those leaves are a delight and the radiating lines create such a feeling of wind & change with an underlying order

    1. I have putting some thought into what works and what doesn't. Those radiating lines are a favorite. Thanks, Mo.
