Oh, December! We've entered that time of year when I can't remember anything and I have to rely on lists and my calendar and my iPhone to keep me on track. There are so many extra activities, holiday parades, holiday sings at school, holiday parties, gifts, plans...I get a little frazzled. I somehow found the time to draw this Hungarian folk art bird which I am loving. I love it in black & white, love the graphic nature of it, but I think I will love it even more in color and will do that soon.
Mostly what I have been doing lately in my free time is reading. I find it funny that in the year I've been blogging I have not mentioned reading because I love to read. I read about 3 or 4 books a month but in the last 3 weeks I've read the Night Circus, Gold, The Art of Fielding and am now on The Second Empress.
What are you reading?
Friend me on Goodreads and you can see follow my books and I can follow yours. (Hopefully this link works...I've been having a hard time with it!)
Finally I leave you with this pencil sketch of more Hungarian inspired flowers...this was done a couple of years ago but was lost in a sketchbook until this week.
Happy Paint Party Friday! I'm hoping for equal parts relaxing and getting some holiday stuff done.
