From starting it, I've ...
finished Festival Face #6, you can see her here,
drawn and donated a drawing for a charity exhibition,
had a commission to do,
arranged & attended 2 sketching events,
had a stall for my art at a winter fair,
produced 2 illustrations for The Story Shack,
and spent 3 weeks on holiday in UK.
I guess that's enough reasons for it to have taken so long.
