Good-bye February and hello March! I just finished this Ireland-looking tower drawing last Friday and I have to admit this gave me a hand cramp from all the detail put into these stones but definitely such a rewarding experience to sit back and look at what I've done and all the time spent on this.

Here is one of my in progress drawings that will be posted in my gallery for sale soon! I'll be adding a slight touch of red color to the slide. A very memorable slide to many people that have grown up around the SE Iowa area.

Here is the completed drawing for the winner of this year's Christmas giveaway! I'll be posting a quick video of the step-by-step progress of this drawing being done- so keep checking back and following me to see how this drawing came to life!
I'll also have some new pieces to share that I've completed but have had to keep them secret until they're given to their owners on Christmas day.
Thank you to all of you that follow my work and for being a fan!
Merry Christmas!! #ch
