After a Long Absence - HI !!!

First...a big HI to all of you...I do apologize for my long absence from the BLOG...but 2009 was a tough and demanding year, and 2010 has started on a similar note :(
I have been run down with work and kids and had all but stopped painting. I have completed my course with Erika Gofton...it was a wonderful experience and I did learn soooo much. I also discovered my love for Willow Charcoal, and bellow is one of the works I completed during the course in willow charcoal, and probably the only work worth showing here lol, as all the other ones are exercises and sketch type of works :)
I hope all of you are well and busy painting away, and I plan to spend the rest of the morning popping into all your blogs and catching up with all of you and the works I missed in the last 5 months.
Take care...and I plan to be more around these days !!!

Good to see you have posted on the blog after a long absence.. i too have not been away.
Have lots to catch up on and plan to slowly get around to see what others i have come to know have been doing.
Your sketch in willow charcoal is great, the composition is appealing.
Glad to read you enjoyed completing your course with Erica Gofton.
Take care.. ease into things.. for we all understand.

Hi Vesna,
Like you, i have been away from the blogging world and have recently returned. May i say your charcoal drawing is fantastic. Really love it.I know how hard charcoal is to use. I would love to see some other of your drawings in this media. I think that would be cool.
Hope you are well.
