Happy 2012



My first post of the new year!
I really didn't want to post something that wasn't finished but I am currently in the middle of a few projects and I just didn't want to wait any longer.
I am planning on using this image in a new encaustic painting I am working on. It started as a small sketch in my sketchbook but I really wanted to include details like eyelashes and fingernails. So I decided to enlarge it to an 18"x24" drawing. The hair is not finished yet as you can see, but I am hoping to get that done soon.
 Although we've had a strange snow-free, and  mild winter I have been doing a lot of knitting too. I'm  finally using the alpaca wool I got when we had our field trip to the farm.
Have a wonderful weekend!
