Christmas Ornament - Goblins

This is the goblin snowman ornament.  It's not quite done.  I think it might need a touch-up and some varnish.  I didn't get around to painting the singing ratsies this year, they'll have to wait until next year.

Christmas Ornament - Elf Lady

The elven lady ornament, all painted up.  It was designed by me and cut out by Jean, my friend's mom, who is a wonderful woodworker.  She has several lovely intarsia pieces in her home that I would love to steal away, made with her own hands. 

I ended up choosing green because I pulled out a lovely forest green out of the Bin o' Paints.  I was very proud of how this ornament turned out, but as Jean pointed out the green is the same colour as the Christmas tree and the lady is completely camouflaged among the branches.  In future years I think she will have to hang in my bathroom.

Journal - Bus Stop Barrier

I went on a little sketchcrawl by myself since I missed the last group Sketchcrawl due to illness. This was a rather battered road barrier set up near my bus stop.

Christmas Card

The second Christmas card I did.  Haven't sent this off to anyone, it may end up part of next year's card stash.

Journal - Passenger

I went out for coffee with a friend and on the way back I sketched a passenger on the train.
