Somehow I got through the craziness that was last week. It went straight from over-worked stress to non-stop celebrations! December 24th was Madeline's (my step-daughter) birthday, complete with cake, presents, and a dance party! The next day was spent in Wewahitchka with Mat's (my boyfriend/ life-partner/ I need a better name for this) parents. My favorite moment was when Betsy (Madeline's Grandmother) opened the present I got her. I made her a drawing of Madeline:
Then Sunday I flew out first thing to see my parents in Virginia. Luckily, some of my other family was able to stay until Sunday to see me for a few hours. I was very grateful and happy to see everyone!
Once I got my new camera I played around with it plenty. Here are some shots of around my parents' house.
Here is one of the portraits I was commissioned to do that I finished last week:
And as if I haven't already posted enough images, here are a few sketches from last week's figure drawing class:

I suppose that's enough for now. Happy New Year everyone!
