A Few December Drawings Before a Cookie Party

Just a few fruits of our labor today!

It's been awhile since I've done any drawing... and it shows in that rocking chair... it's not meant to be tipping forward or in the middle of the paper! But, this was a warm up. Plus, I used Stonehenge paper and it does not take gouache well at all! Much prefer the Arches Cover or Rives BFK... guess I spoiled myself using those papers for ink drawings because after today, I won't use anything else!

We had a big cookie decorating party today with all the kids in the local family... sugar cookies with colored frosting and silver dragees, and about a million sprinkles! They all had a great time, and me too. It's so fun to watch them work, talk, sample etc. Hope you are all having jolly times with family and friends.... Happy Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year.... :)
I've been tapering off on posts lately and will probably do more of the same over the next few days. But, there may be a few posts here and there!

That's one hard core cookie you've got going on there! It looks awesome and I love the village drawing too!

Hi Paula, Thank you! I love to do those drawings. My neice did those cookies... and was very involved in them!
