Christmas Trees #2

I believe I told you to check back today for six more tree illustrations but it is the holidays and there were cookies to bake, gifts to wrap, a preschool christmas program to travel to, etc. etc. Here are the last four. To anyone reading this, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a blessed new year and most importantly I wish you . . . peace.

I will start back up with my weekly Wednesday blog on January 3rd.

Christmas Trees

     Hi there!
     I have missed you all!
     I set a little challenge for myself to post a Christmas tree design on Instagram every day until Christmas. (Starting on December 15). Here are the first four. It's been nice to exercise my drawing muscles and just play a little. Please, stop back by on Christmas Eve. I hope to have 6 more of these little sweethearts done. Some of these may lead to more official Christmas card designs for next year.
     I took a break from my art in November for two reasons. First, I wanted to focus a bit more on my writing for a while. I added 11,000 words to a middle grade chapter book I'm working on. Yay! I also joined a writing group with some lovely people who will make writing a lot less lonely.
     Second, my studio was torn up while my husband helped give it a face lift. It is now my happy place!!! I am all set up for the new year!
