handmade holidays: a drawing of their girl

Well, the Handmade Holidays posts are going on and on. This is the last one, I promise.

For my parents, I made a drawing of Fiona sleeping, which you may remember I have done before (if it's going to be a drawing from life, there is no other option!). They hung it in their dining room, where it looks really nice!

I am still rusty and vow to make more time for drawing (and painting, I hope!) in 2011. It used to be such an important part of my life and hate to think that is something of of the past. I have to admit that it's a bit of a dream of mine that one day, when my children are older, I dedicate myself to painting and over the course of many years, become a great painter. My last painting was finished almost 4 years ago and can be seen in this post. Too long!

Merry Christmas, Mom and Dad (Grammie and Granddad)! You can expect another piece for your walls on your upcoming THIRTIETH wedding anniversary. ;)
