I guess you might be able to tell that I am ready for my mountains. We are all looking forward to the Christmas break to spend at our home in Arizona. We miss it so much it will be a sight for sore eyes. We leave on Christmas Eve and return on New Years Day. Waiting with baited breath.

This is gouache on hot press paper with micron pen.

This week we will be celebrating my grandson's 16th birthday! I can't believe he is that old already. Old enough to drive. Driving lessons begin in March! Argh!

Sometimes I do my best work at night, on the bed with my wooden drawing board on my lap and the TV on. I love to watch old episodes of Breaking Bad for some reason. I have seen them all a million times but I like having something on that I don't have to pay attention to. Does that make sense? It is like comfort food or something. Anyway, that is what I have been doing lately and some of the drawings are better than anything I do during the day.

I think this would make a lovely pattern.

Working on some holiday cards. They will all be done by hand. Each one a little different than the next. It is is all I can do right now. I have been doing most work by hand. The computer is holding very little interest for me as far as designing or illustrating goes. If you would like to receive one of these cards, send me your address in an email and I will try to get one out to you. The inside can be left blank so you can send it to someone special or you can frame it.

I am also working on hand lettering right now. Taking some online classes and trying to get better at it. I thought that the seven deadly sins would be a good place to begin. As you can see I still need lots of practice. But that is OK. It keeps me focused.

I have been trying to practice my lettering lately and incorporating it into the work. 
That pesky left handed tilt gets me every time though. Whatever.....
