I really didn't intend to go so long without a post, but things have been just so busy lately! I've had three Christmas commissions (which I will post after Christmas) and wanted to get them done in time for shipping. Also, a few days before Thanksgiving my 2-year-old daughter decided she doesn't want to nap anymore. This took away my largest block of art-time. The good news is she loves to draw, too. I set up her kid-sized table and chairs with her pad of paper and box of markers and crayons, and my table-top easel on the kitchen counter, and we draw together.
So now that I have shipped off the last of my Christmas gifts, I will have a little more time to devote to my own art. I'll be starting the zebras soon and working on the coral reef more, and I promise I will get another drawing tip posted in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy the snow and try to relax.
