Merry Christmas

Rab and Rhu
12"x16" Coloured Pencil
Copyright Laura Hardie 2009

Both Rab and Rhu are finished which means my pencils can now be put away over the Christmas holidays. I’ve not got anything special planned so it will be a quiet one for me this year, most likely spent watching too much TV and eating lots of chocolate. Whatever I do I hope it’ll be a time to relax, although I’m not sure that’s entirely possible living with a teenage, hormonal daughter:)

It’s not been a good year for me as regular readers of my blog will know but I’ve had some amazing support from people both here on my blog and through personal emails which I want you to know gave me much needed strength and confidence when I needed it. I’ve appreciated each and every comment/email – every one encouraged me to keep going through what I wont deny has been a very difficult and emotional period of my life - so a huge, warm, heartfelt THANK YOU to you all.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all who follow and read my blog a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR. Here’s to 2010.

Rab and Rhu are truly fabulous!! Congratulations on getting them finished and may you enjoy your break. Also, congratulations on surviving such a tough year. You have managed to keep up with your art in spite of it all and I suspect at times this couldn't have been easy.

This nasty bit of life you have found yourself in will pass. Even if the changes come rather slowly, bit by bit you will find yourself coming into a better place. 2010 is going to be better, so much better!!

May you have a blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!

Wow, beautiful work. I just found your site. Very nice. I own three cocker spaniels - all party and am working on a portrait of my no. 1 cocker Lucy. (She's my icon) Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Have a great 2010!
