happily buried in creative work

I got so many emails from the last post. Thank you to everyone!! I am working on a few more projects that I am very excited to talk about....but I need to wait a bit longer. Call me superstitious but I don't want to say too much too soon. Sometimes things fall through...you just never know. Lets just say it is a big project and if all goes well I will be spilling everything in May! (I am jumping up and down right now:)

I have been drawing more the past two months than I can ever remember. It feels really good.
Do you recognize the ink drawing below? It is the beginnings of what became "Secret Garden" for Alluminare.
I am so excited to be heading to the countryside this weekend with Steven. We are going to get to have dinner with one of my dearest friends and stay in one of her cottages. I blogged about this special place here and here. I am looking forward to bike rides, long walks and wine next to the fireplace and being computer free. Just sketchbook and paints:) I suspect I will have some very good photos on Monday. Until then, cheers and Happy Thursday!
