Bloggy birthday...!

This weekend is a special one, because tomorrow (Sunday), it will be 'Sandraws' birthday!!!

Exactly one year ago tomorrow, I published the very first post on my brand new blog; This sketch of my kitchen...

© Sandra Busby. Pen and Watercolour.

I was absolutely delighted when I received my first ever comment from Laura at Laurelines!
Those of you who love to look at sketches, would love her lively blog and should definitely pay her a visit :0)

From the very beginning my blog has been an honest one and I have posted the good, the bad and the utterly embarrassing! 

Anyway, before I go, I'd love to know what you would like to see more of over the coming year  - after all, we all have different tastes and I'd like to be able to offer something for everyone :0)
So, what would you like to see? More sketches, perhaps (I haven't done many over the last year)? Or maybe you would like to see more art in a particular style such as abstract? 
Or perhaps you might have a suggestion on how I could improve my blog -  I'd love to know!

Anyway, here's to another fun-filled year of blogging!


  1. Happy 1st!
    I enjoy seeing all your work.. and congrats on the improvement.. sometimes I think painting just so we have something to blog about improves us no end xx

  2. Hi Sandra, tomorrow I will be out all I want to wish you now......a fantastic Happy Birthday!! Un abbraccio! Tito.

  3. Your blog is fabulous just as it is.....nice to find another artist like myself who shows it all. Happy Anniversary....looking forward to another great year.

  4. Happy birthday Sandraws.. :)

  5. Sandra, Happy Birthday, and may you continue to paint and improve and, most importantly, enjoy the journey!

  6. Happy Birthday to your blog!

    Ciao Sandra!

  9. Happy birthday for tomorrow Sandra, and just paint what you want to, not what we want you to!

  10. Hello Sandra, thanks for your comment. The moment you're living is hard. I've been there. I always studied a lot and at one point had to forget everything that was studied in order to make art.
    Art as a form of expression is something beyond technique - she uses the technique.
    We can not allow the academic barriers prevent the progression of creation. We must overcome our own critique. During the creative act can not make assessments and judgments.
    You are talented and will surely achieve the objective.
    Best wishes and much success!

  11. Happy blog birthday, I love your artwork and am happy to see what you have on offer, I also show the good the bad and the ugly, I hope mine improves like yours

  12. Well, happy blog birthday! Yay! It takes a certain commitment and braveness of heart : ) I have loved following your blog and look forward to the year ahead Sandra! Congrats : ))

  15. Happy Blogversary!

    To echo Frank "just paint what you want to, not what we want you to!" :D

  16. Happy 1st bloggy birthday. I'm only a recent follower but i do loveto share the honesty of what makes another artist tick (still feel a fraud calling myself an artist as it isn't my career but not sure how else to describe what i do) anyway i love your paintings and look forward to more of the same over the next year.
