End of Christmas


Well Christmas weekend is over and now on to the new year.

We have no plans for New Year's. We are not party people. We don't leave our dogs at home alone to get frightened by the fireworks. A perfect New Year for us is being at home, a nice dinner, some television, and playing with our paw babies. I'm sure we will be plenty tired after listening to the thump, thump, thump from the music/party next door for most of the night. (Their parties are usually still going at 4 or 5 am.)

I worked on some of my Out of Africa cards this weekend. I finished 3 and they will be mailed tomorrow. One to England and the other two to US states.

For some reason after doing all my cards in graphite, I ended up doing these 3 in color. I'm not sure the remaining ones will be in color or if I will go back to graphite.

Here is the latest of my African cards that arrived at its destination.

Love the giraffe in graphite!!! I've been doing items for the hunt that I will post when we get back from Maine. I haven't done much other painting since I'm spending time with family. Hope to head back tomorrow if the weather is clear.

It's a woman after my own heart who puts her fur kids ahead of a night out!

Thank heavens we live in the country too far from partying neighbors to hear any noise except the occasional fireworks.

Nice giraffe - they're one of my most favorite wild critters!

Great giraffe. I love all of your animal drawings. I tagged you for the new meme "5 a Day" on my blog. No obligation, of course. Only if you have the time and interest.
