I am one of several sponsors for 2014 KCC poker run, donating a portrait of a winners bike, looking forward to that. If you want to find out more about the Run go to https://www.facebook.com/pages/BIKE-ME/145613175490284?fref=ts
How have you all managed your families get togethers? One day with some, another day with others, some you don't even see? Gets a bit hectic doesn't it? I ate way too much and put on 2 kilos, deserts two days in a row, which I never usually eat!! Totally enjoyed them though. Back on track now. We have 5 littlies under 3 in our families now, with another on the way, so it was fun watching them play, argue, sleep, play, argue, sleep hehe.
Hunter managed to twist my arm into having a rest over last night.... not a sleep over as he reckons he doesn't need sleep. (3 years old) Mind you, he was in bed at 6.30pm and slept till 6am. 'morning nan & pop, I had a big rest'.
I have done several new portraits this month. I drew Ross's Triumph, plus some hot rods, John Farnham, Chuck Norris & Marc Marquez. I will put up pics after writing this.
This months contest I tried to be really tough, but my entries got it easy hey!! I had eyes of dogs I had drawn on the top row and mixed up the matching dog pics underneath. Anyways, I decided to have two winners, Monique & Diana won. Monique won a portrait and Diana won a set of my gift cards.
Monica who owns Northlakes deli in S.Australia bought a bunch of my cards for the deli. pretty happy about that. Also sold a bundle of cards to Rosemary in Perth, many thanks.
I hope to put out lots of new portraits and paintings, and meet new people. Meeting new people means I am going to Auckland, New Zealand in February to an Art & Healing Retreat for 4 days, so really excited about that too. I have been to the South Island but not the North, and if its anything like the South it will be spectacular.
So I hope you have all enjoyed your Christmas with loved ones, had lots of laughs, shared thoughts about loved ones that are no longer with you and for me this was Whiskey. First Christmas in 15 years he was not with me, still tear up thinking about him at times. Its just been over 2 months since he passed, I miss him.
Whatever plans or no plans you have for the coming year, take care of yourself, be the best you can, life is short, so do what makes you happy as long as you are not hurting anybody. We all really just want to lead a happy, healthy, loving life while we are here. Be positive, true to yourself, we all have different views on things and thats a good thing. Get rid of any negativity that may be holding you back.
Love and Light to every one of you.
