 :'(  It's a bittersweet moment as I post my final drawing for the course. It has been such a wonderful time of discovery and personal growth.

 :thankyou:  I have much gratitude to Nolan, Dennis, and the Paint Basket members for guiding and encouraging me as I stepped into the world of art.

What is so exciting is this course is the springboard into further discovery and growth as I explore more drawing and other mediums. Watercolor and pen and ink are calling out to me.  :yippee:

I love art!  :smitten:

 :thankyou: Thank you so much Nolan. Your classes are amazing.

Yes, I am stoked and a bit nervous about what is now 3 requests for drawings. I'm not going to rush into commissions but will be excited to do them in the near future.  :D

I'd thought about putting in the people in my landscape.  I may go back and add them per your suggestion.

 :clap: Well done Kathy!
In a very short period you have become an artist and a marketing wizard as well. Congrats on completing Let's Draw. I have been stalling on my final drawing, I too hate to leave the "nest" and I have also decided to branch out a bit, I might even try scratch board! All the best to you and I'll be looking for your future works.
