A New Year - A New Dawn




Greetings!

It’s ages since I linked up with Paint Party Friday. Health issues and family concerns have gotten in the way of pretty much everything. But a New Year brings with it a new dawn. I’ve been steadily scribbling away in my notebook and have come up with lots of new ideas for getting creative in 2019.

Here’s a mandala I’ve been working on, it’s far from finished, but I hope you like it. I’ve drawn this with my favourite medium - ink. I love the simplicity of working with ink. All you need is a pen and some paper. I’ll be writing more about that in a future post.

That’s all for now, have a great weekend everyone.

    1. Hi, Nicole. Thank you very much. This time of year is always a challenge for me. The cold weather upsets my asthma and it makes my pain seem worse, too. But, hey, it is what it is. Roll on Spring.
