The Longest Unfinished Project Ever??
entirely new. I was last minute with my challenge piece as usual when I suddenly remembered this - I mean Marie Antoinette, how French can you get? So I spent this afternoon finishing it, but - I'll own up now - I started this drawing in ... 1989 (yes, really, the year is pencilled in on the back)!! I used to do a lot of pencil and coloured pencil work long before I really got into painting (and I discovered today that I still find that medium almost hypnotically relaxing). I actually started this drawing for my late mum all those years ago (she would have described this as "proper art"!) so for sentimental reasons this one isn't for sale. Which is a shame really, as I would have been able to list it on etsy as handmade AND vintage!
