10''x 8'', Pencil
Copyright Laura Hardie 2012

Christmas has definitely crept up on me this year so everything has been left to the last minute, except cards funnily enough, I had these written and posted ridiculously early for me. But after what has to be the most stressful weekend ever fighting my way through crowds of Christmas shoppers I’ve never seen the likes of before, I can happily say presents are bought, wrapped and under the tree and the fridge and cupboards are full. All that is left for me to do now is hibernate until the New Year - with my pencils and paper of course. I have lots to do and so planning many an hour of me drawing, and very possibly painting, time.

The drawing in todays post was a Christmas commission but one that didn’t quite make it under the tree until the 25th so I can safely share with you now. It was commissioned by a very thoughtful husband as a present to his wife and is actually one of two portraits, the other of which I will share in my next post.

Before I sign off I’d like to say a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU to all my friends and followers of my blog, for all your support and encouragement you have given me throughout the year – it means such a lot to me. Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and here’s to a productive and creative 2013 – think it’s going to be a good one! MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE XX
