Seasons Greetings - The Thread

As in previous years folks, I thought it would be an idea to post the greetings messages to all, from all - here. Saves replying to seperate threads and makes a nice memento.
I'll kick off - all the best to the finest bunch of artistic practitioners, makers and supporters in web-land - have a great time filled with love.

A lot smarter than my method Tim of slowly working my way through everyone's threads. All the best to all of you this holiday season and in the new year!

Christmas 2012

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year!

* I have not had much time to do much sketching/drawing lately so I will just include one of my photos.

Ah yes, the ol' Season's Greetings thread! Smart thinking Batman...

I woke up early this morning (around 4), maybe it's the excitement and anticipation of Christmas? More likely it's my usual alarm clock time and my body clock doesn't seem capable of understanding that the alarm is off! Anyway I got up and showered etc then decided that a Robin needed doing so I scuttled off to knock one out. (Please note Nick, Tim and others, that this statement is made in all innocence and any connotations of a lurid nature are completely unintentional and all allegations of such activity will be considered libelous!)

So here's my greetings to you all for this season of goodwill however you choose to celebrate it. Although many of you I haven't yet met in person I still like to think of you as my friends and I count myself lucky to have enjoyed your company, encouragement and support during the time we've been together on BF, Thanks to all and Merry Christmas everyone!

Mike

As above, Merry Winter festivities..... Although not in the same league, Its good to know that us struggling at the lower ranks get the support from the rest of you guys....Its an honour to know you all.
No paintings Im afraid, Im still struggling with my 'Fishing' scenes, Nearly got one knocked out ( STOP, Its not funny any more ok), but hope to do one more to make sure its not a fluke...Sorry But you'll all have to settle for an appropriate Photo.

I know I've never posted any pics of paintings or sketches all the years I've been a member of BF but my Number One Resolution for 2013 is to stop procrastinating and being scared of that white paper and just start sitting in a hide and DRAW SOMETHING WOMAN!!!!! So watch this space

In the meantime.....

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL ON BIRD FORUM

No pics or paintings BUT.....something I set up earlier this afternoon.....Seasons Greetings From George xxxxx
