Late, but Happy 2015!


We returned last week from a frosty but lovely Christmas and New Year in England where we spent a relaxed holiday with family. I didn't even try sitting outside in that cold (though everyone said what a mild winter it was) to draw, but I did this sketch from a warm living room window. Those wintry tree skeletons could provide years of inspiration with the varying veils of mist and colour, this is a very rough and inadequate quickie rendition. I only managed a few other even rougher sketches when I found myself twiddling my thumbs in a warm spot...



...and now here we are back in warm if not quite sunny South Africa and our jungly green garden that needs some serious taming.
Wishing everyone who looks in, a wonderful, productive and creative new year!

Great sketches - I enlarged the three men to see the writing behind - very cool to add the text that way!!

A belated Happy New Year to you too.
Lovely, lively sketches--I like the feeling of people crowded into a space, and, like Rhonda love the texters framed against their texts!
