As promised here is one of the portrait commissions I completed at the end of 2011.
Drawn on Canson 160gm pastel paper with a combination of
Derment Prismacolor & Derwent Studio pencils.
My next post will be my 100th post and i think a giveaway would be in order. What do you think?
In other news, Life Book
is up and running and as expected, its awesome. Over 900 students have enrolled thus far. Amazing huh? Well done to Tamara Laporte
. I haven’t completed week 1 yet, but am looking forward to working on it over the next few days or so.
I have also been asked to be involve in a new project. Whoo Hoo! But for now it remains under wraps while planning and preparations occur. I’ll let you know all about it as soon as I’m able.
On a personal note, my youngest child recently turned 5 years old and starts school in a few weeks. I can’t begin to tell you how bitter sweet this is. The positive side is the obvious, I’ll have more time to get everything done and more. Artwork here I come. The negative side to this is the realization that my baby is growing up and will no longer be with me 24 hours a day (well, just about). I’m making the most of the remaining school holidays, as come early Feb my baby, my little buddy, my daily companion, my helper, my source of unconditional love, hugs and kisses, my little spark that makes me laugh every day without fail, will go to school with his brother Jack (6 years old) and his sister Louise (7 years old) and will no longer be by my side all day long.
Bitter sweet indeed.
I’m dreading that first day when I kiss and cuddle him goodbye and walk home……by myself. He, on the other hand, is ready and very excited about going and I will not let him see how big-a-deal this is for me. Instead I will make a big deal about how great the occasion is for him and how happy I am for him.
2012 is full of big changes for me and I am excited and eagerly looking forward to discovering what is in store. Time will tell.
I hope that 2012 brings you all the things you need in order to follow your dreams and live the life your are destined to live.
