I wonder what the new year will bring. I know a new grandgirl will be born in late February or early March. And I know a niece will be married in September and I'm hoping to meet a grown niece at the wedding that I've never met before.
I am hoping to strengthen my friendship with my arty friend, Nancy. I think we may get to a life drawing session in January. I am looking at Hollander's new class offerings and hoping to take another book binding one. I am hoping to reconnect with my friends at Puff's. I'm hoping to take a class with Sandy in Niles.
I am also looking forward to beginning the Sketchbook Challenge tomorrow. I've chosen a landscape format, 5.5" x 8.25", 128 page journal. Because of the width, I may divide each page in two. This will give me 256 spaces in which to work. I am hoping to see some marked improvement in both my commitment to do art everyday and to my personal growth as an artist.
For the last post of 2010 I have a quick sketch of a decorative pitcher that I used to keep kitchen utensils in, but now have in my work room.
And a blind contour of same:
Last year the hubster bought a bottle of bubbly to welcome in the new year and it still resides in the refrigerator unopened. I am not much of a wine drinker (migraine sufferers are not supposed to imbibe).
Happy New Year! If you are a reveler, be safe; if you are going to watch the ball drop on TV, good luck staying awake &-)
