Military Santa

watercolor 5 x 7

This is a Santa that I painted especially for my nephew, Patrick, who is in the Army. It is also for all of the men and women who serve in the armed forces. We thank you for protecting our great country. We wish you could all be home for Christmas with your loved ones. Know you are deep in our thoughts and prayers.
peace!

Santa, look what I drew.

watercolor 5 x 7

Just getting into the season. My dad used to play Santa...well actually, he didn't have to play it. He was it!! I have many fond memories of him doing so.

I just got done baking 3 batches of cookies so I will be able to leave some out for Santa and his reindeer. Do reindeer eat cookies? lol Maybe I will eat their share. More cookies to bake next week.
Enjoy.

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas


watercolor 7 x 11

This was a demo that I did a few weeks ago at the senior center in town. No, you do not have to be a senior to attend the class, or to teach it. We had a blast. At the end, I showed them how to add snow and glitter to really make it festive. I also made this into a card for Christmas. Enjoy.

Back to decorating for me. I just finished my 10 ft. tree in the living room. It has 2,000 lights on it. A bunch of gold bows, gold beaded garland and 268 ornaments. I think I still have more ornaments to put on this tree, but I did not get that box up yet. I think there are some in the boxes that have the village in it. I am getting there. By the end of the week I plan to have all of the decorating done. Whew. Then to think of writing out my cards and baking. My envelopes are all calligraphied. There is still time for you to come and help out :)
