Thank You Secret Santa!

Last week I received a gorgeous figure from my Secret Santa and I would like to thank that person for the time and the effort put into painting this most lovely figure.


The brushwork on this figure is clean, tidy and the highlights are just perfect. I learned a great deal from having a figure painted at this quality in my hands as I do not have an opportunity to see other peoples work in person. And would you just look at that base? It's gorgeous.

The Annual Secret Santa is sponsored by Ian at The Blog With No Name and I was pleased to be able to participate in this years event.

As far as the Challenge goes, I am on track. My Bonus Entry was completed on time and that was a huge relief. By the end of this month I plan on completing a small Western Vignette and my Villain for the next Bonus round.

Unlike the rest of the Wild Bunch, Christmas will not hamper my progress as the Hubby is to weak to make the trip to his parents house. So while you guys have pressies in your hands, I will have a brush in mine.

Wishing you all Happy Holidays!

  11. Have the best time you can and make sure you get to enjoy it at least a little bit. Make some time for yourself. Get some painting done and get some points on the board. Best wishes Clint

  19. Have a happy holiday yourself there Anne. The figure looks great. It's a bit of a shame you can't get your hands on other people's work much. Sounds like it's like reading a book to learn how to write. Well done on getting the bonus figures and everything made too. Keep at it.

  31. I feel like I missed out on the secret santa front because that's a great figure. This is also the first time I've read or seen the word "pressies". Hopefully you had a great Christmas. And a Happy New Year to you and yours.
