grey days!

good morning!

it has been very grey around here lately. 
the skies have been filled with grey
and the house has been dark.
(thank goodness for candles and christmas lights)

it is a busy time of year for everyone.
it is especially busy around the studio as i am creating new illustrations for the upcoming New Year!
(us artists are like little elves working away while everyone is sleeping)

i was especially happy one morning to have the sunshine filling our house with light.

it had cast the most beautiful light on one of my recent illustrations.
i just love working with pencil and i sometimes don't want to add colour.
(their is a softness and simplicity about it)
