Sigh. . . Time to Take Down the Decorations

It's that time again. Time to take down the Christmas decorations and put them away for another year. I sat having my coffee and realized that I had not skecthed any of the decorations for EDM # 46 so I grabbed my moleskine and my artpen and went to work.

After I finished taking all the decorations down and sat recovering from the effort I started to add in some color. I am pleased with the result because it brings back the beauty of our Christmas each time I look at it.

Nice job.

I missed the holiday challenge - smart taking the opportunity when you could.

This is so lovely! It makes me want to dig out the decorations and put them all back up on the mantle. I had a really hard time putting them away this year. My wreath is still up there on the fireplace, and I lit it today. I'm sure I'll finally pack it away, but putting the nutcrackers in their boxes made me so sad, so I left the wreath for just a little while longer. This sketch is filled with holiday colors... thanks for sharing it with us!
