Merry Christmas 2015

We had a fun Christmas Eve at my sister's and brother-in-law's home.  My sister-in-law brought a selfie stick so we could all get in a group selfie.  Four brothers were there - but two sisters weren't able to come (one in Ventura with her daughter's family and the other sister lives in Colorado.)  It is hard to get the eight siblings together at one time.  It's always great to get together with my brothers and sisters, I love them all.

Can I Learn to Draw?

I recently won a giveaway from Marva at Purplepaint's Muse.  Her giveaway included this book by Danny Gregory that is a learning to draw tutorial, and a moleskin notebook.  I have always admired Marva's drawings, and I do wonder if I can learn to draw.  Marva assures me that I can.

I must confess that I have yet to draw the first thing, and the pages of the moleskin are pristine - always an excuse - you know, Christmas shopping and decorating etc.  But I will dive in one of these days real soon.  And when I've drawn something that looks better than my drawings when I was five, I'll share them with you.

Thank you Marva, I love it and promise to do my best!
