More horses

A work in progress - coloured pencil on paper

This week has seen the schools closed for the holidays so, as is always the case when the kids are off, I've had a lazy week doing not a lot.

When I have picked up my pencils it's been to work on another horse, well pony to be exact. What you see here is where I am now - pre-background, with the horse more or less finished. This will be no.3 in my series, leaving 32 still to do by the end of the year. I can't help thinking I've bitten off more than I can chew with this goal, especially with the speed I work at. Thirty five was a bit ambitious and, if I'm being honest, don't think I've fully thought this one through - we can but see.

Away from the easel I have been playing with my blog. I still haven't found a way to add my banner without having to change templates but thanks to FeedBurner, there is now the option to subscribe to my blog and get updates via RSS feed or via e-mail direct to your inbox. I'm sure I've done everything right and all is in working order but do let me know if you experience any problems.

Thanks Victoria, they're certainly keeping me busy;)

Thanks Rhonda, one of the reasons I showed my goals to all was to help keep me motivated and of course it makes me accountable. I'll be so pleased with myself if I do pull it off:)
