I recently received beautiful frames from Randy Higbee.  The Santas look so great in the dark frames.

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like....

Jolly Ole’ Elf
11x14, oil on panel
It has been my tradition for some years to create Christmas art – click here and here for just a couple.  I love it and am always sorry I don’t start earlier.  It’s a stretch to keep up the Christmas energy and excitement much past January 1st.  Well, this year I did it!  How delightfully easy it was to catch the holiday spirit in October!

I saw a Christmas clock last week. It read something like: 42 days, 7 hours, 20 minutes, and 15 seconds. (Jaw drop.) I'm going back to painting... Thanks for looking!

Painting Paper with Paper: Gifts, Wrapped

Zig Zag, Too
12x24, paper on canvas
Can't get enough of this gray and white chevron paper.  I enjoyed painting Zig Zag so much I decided to give it another go, but this time in torn paper. (Click on the orange link to see the oil version.) Used some of those inky painty papers too!  Love the oil version and the paper version hanging together. (Click on the next orange link to see the hand painted papers.) Email me if you're interested and thanks for looking!
