"Hazelbank"

My card making table has been overtaken with drawing implements for the past couple of weeks and nary a card has touched my fingertips!  I've been working on a pen and ink drawing that will be auctioned this weekend as part of our little Village's 150th birthday.  It depicts an old blacksmith's shed that was built in the late 19th century and serviced our local area.  I had a wonderful time working on this piece, it's been such a long time since I sat down and did a "serious" piece of art.

Beccy, this is amazing. I knew you were talented, but I had no idea to what degree until I saw this post. Man, I wish I were there in your little village, I would definitely bid on this drawing. It looks like a photograph. I just cannot get over the details and how realistic your drawing is. I'm sure this is going to bring in quite a bit of bids. Wonderful drawing.

Have you thought about producing a digi with a weather beaten barn? I had one I really liked, but someone (not me LOL!) wiped out some of my files!
