Pencil Portrait Finished - Ashley

As promised here is one of the portrait commissions I completed at the end of 2011.

Drawn on Canson 160gm pastel paper with a combination of 
Derment Prismacolor & Derwent Studio pencils.

My next post will be my 100th post and i think a giveaway would be in order. What do you think?

In other news, Life Book is up and running and as expected, its awesome. Over 900 students have enrolled thus far. Amazing huh? Well done to Tamara Laporte. I haven't completed week 1 yet, but am looking forward to working on it over the next few days or so. 

I have also been asked to be involve in a new project. Whoo Hoo! But for now it remains under wraps while planning and preparations occur. I'll let you know all about it as soon as I'm able.

On a personal note, my youngest child recently turned 5 years old and starts school in a few weeks. I can't begin to tell you how bitter sweet this is. The positive side is the obvious, I'll have more time to get everything done and more. Artwork here I come. The negative side to this is the realization that my baby is growing up and will no longer be with me 24 hours a day (well, just about). I'm making the most of the remaining school holidays, as come early Feb my baby, my little buddy, my daily companion, my helper, my source of unconditional love, hugs and kisses, my little spark that makes me laugh every day without fail, will go to school with his brother Jack (6 years old) and his sister Louise (7 years old) and will no longer be by my side all day long.
Bitter sweet indeed. 
I'm dreading that first day when I kiss and cuddle him goodbye and walk myself. He, on the other hand, is ready and very excited about going and I will not let him see how big-a-deal this is for me. Instead I will make a big deal about how great the occasion is for him and how happy I am for him. 
2012 is full of big changes for me and I am excited and eagerly looking forward to discovering what is in store. Time will tell.

I hope that 2012 brings you all the things you need in order to follow your dreams and live the life your are destined to live.

Humungous Hugs,

Life Book is underway. WooHoo!

Happy New Year to you all. I know it's a little late.
Just popping in to let you know that the Mixed Media Life Book course has just started. It's never too late to jump in and get started. The first class, by the wonderful and talented Tamara Laporte (aka Willowing) is up and running and is as brilliant as I expected. My class starts on 30th January.
 If you're thinking about treating yourself to a year of fun, friendship and creativity, then Life Book is for you. Click on the image above for more details. I do hope to see you here.

My upcoming post will include my last two finished portraits of 2011 and some new mixed media pieces I've been working on.

I'm also planning a giveaway for my 100th post (2 posts away), so stay tuned.

Until then,
Hugs, Kyles xo
