Merry Christmas


We're hosting out of town company during our first Christmas in Oregon.
Guess I'd better start shopping.


I hope everyone reading this has a safe and blessed Christmas season.
See you before the new year begins.

Well, I managed to get three art projects going at the same time.  Why do I do that?

Same Squirrel

Unititled
Oil with Palette Knife - 6 X 6

Same squirrel - different pose.  This will be the last time we see him because he's probably still running.  Our dog Cobie wasn't very nice.

Magic in the Night Sky

Light Show
Oil- 6 X 6

Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night and take a peek at the sky?   I've seen some pretty spectacular shows - the stars, the clouds, the glow.  Sometimes it seems as if the heavens are dancing.

Portobello Christmas

Oil with Palette Knife - 6 X 6

We had the good fortune of taking a family vacation in London many years ago.  While shopping in Notting Hill, my niece and I found these antique Christmas ornaments at the Saturday Portobello Market.
