First I'd like to thank you for all your Christmas wishes and visits to my blog! I love getting slowly back into my blogging routine. Although at the moment I find the thought of going through all my travel photos of the last month to show you a few select pictures quite overwhelming. So, I'll do that when the muse strikes me. 

For now, I felt inspired to pick up my pencil and do a drawing for Tam's (willowing.ning.com) class Fabulous Faces. My sister, Caroline (you can visit her blog here), reminded me of Tam's Life Book class that we are both now signed up for. With the year-long Life Book class that is taught by several wonderful mixed media artists, we also got the Fabulous Faces class and this sketch is for week 1. 
It's quite different from my "usual" portraits, but I had such fun with it. Plus, it was soooo good to do some art again after quite a while. 

I'll have to visit your blogs this week sometime to find out what you all have been up to! I have missed you all!!


  1. Hi Silke-like your face! I am taking the Life Book class also. I signed up for the Magical Mythical Beings class.

  2. Beautiful sketch Silke!! I am in Tam's Fabulous Faces class too! (not through lifebook but on its own) Dont you just love her! As usual I am all over the place so I will eventually make my way back to it.

    Oh how I have missed you! xo

  3. Des yeux profonds...
    Je vous renouvelle mes voeux pour 2012, afin que tout soit possible y compris le bonheur.
    Gros bisous.

  4. Liebe Silke,

    dein schöner Schal ist ein Gedicht.
    Er wärmt mich nicht nur draußen,
    sondern auch zu Hause.

    Liebe Grüße der Dankbarkeit

  5. Das ist ein sehr schönes Portrait liebe Silke. Sie sieht so sanftmütig aus.

  7. Hi Silke, I hope you had a good holiday. ARe you back in town? I'm curious about this Life Class. Check out my blog. All the changes stem from the insights I got from our tea time!Thanks so much. Hope to see you soon.

  8. Tam's year class looks really fun to do! I'll look forward to seeing your progression through the year. Isn't she amazing to have taken on this with a new baby too?!
    Happy new year Silke, my blog wheels haven't quite cranked up yet but they're thinking about it! ;o)

  9. A little synchronicity, perhaps, my blog is turning to my return to the practice of sketching, and now, inspired by Urban Sketchers & by Brenda Swensen, Daily Sketching. Your face has such character!
