New Year's Day. Time for setting goals, making resolutions, starting fresh. You know the drill. Today I had our traditional New Year's lunch with family. Good food, good company, good time. I have started reading Kathy Johnson's book The Sierra Club Guide to Sketching in Nature with a group of very dear online friends. Today was too busy to go outside and sketch - got home after dark - so I will stretch a bit and say this is my first nature drawing of the year.
