18 Comments

I love drawing on black paper! Hahnemühle has a sketchbook I want to tell you about today! And I’m going to be giving a copy away in my Facebook group called Tangle All Around today as well.

Bird Art Anyone?

Christmas Eve our water pump died. What bad timing! Our neighbor helped us find some incredibly nice fellows who came out in the middle of the night and tried to figure it out.
