2008 Starts Here

Happy New Year to you all!
I have decided to set myself a few goals this year but not so many that I will be so finely spread not to enjoy the year before it slips into the past.
The first of these goals is to concentrate on people. I worked a little on this last year too, attending life sessions when they were held in a local village and carrying my sketchbook around with me on all occasions. My youngest Son Harry appeared on regular postings, often engrossed in his toys or a film, and when all else failed I sketched myself. I tried hard to work from life where possible as I will this year, however, so I don't restrict myself in any way that may hinder my productivity, sometimes I shall use references as I have here.
I am labelling my posts in this category '2008 People Project' that gives me the scope to concentrate on either figure or portrait sketches...A nice broad horizon! I hope to produce something for this project at least every other day, if not daily.
I have joined BLOG365 to encourage me to continue to post daily here, I intend to try hard not to miss a single post during 2008.
I would like to thank everyone who has visited my blog over the past year, all those who have encouraged and inspired...without you all I don't think my blogging would be so regular or so pleasurable. Knowing I have visitors to share my daily creative activities with pushes me to be productive on occasions I know I would otherwise falter, your comments have meant so much. THANKYOU!
