Merry Christmas to All

Here is it Christmas Eve in Indiana.  We celebrated on Saturday by having a party with Tim 's family.  It was a Polar Express Party.  We had a blast.  My next party is on Saturday the 29th and will be even bigger than the family one that had 19 people..  I always throw a big party for my students, too.  There is also a painting competition involved for them....plus plenty of food, drinks and prizes.

Here's to a great New Year to all of you!!  Peace and Love, Kathy

Love Santa's at the mall.  My dad used to be a santa so you will see his face in most of my santas.  Hope you are getting ready for the holidays.  Got all of the trees done...yes, one in every room.  Gifts are all wrapped, just need bows...

Ornament of the Season

watercolor
5" x 7"
Still Life

While up in Chicago last year I took some photos of the trees at Macy's.  Thought I would do some paintings for the season.  Hope you are busy decorating.  I am.  Got 3 trees up this weekend.  Tomorrow I am hoping to get my 9' tree done.  That one takes a while to complete.

The dining room tree has colored lights, is 7 ' tall and is all decorated with baskets filled with Christmas greenery.  The sun room tree is a full 7-1/2" tree with colored lights and that one has nothing but snow, snowmen (snow people), snowflakes.  Hope they do not melt in the sun room.  lol.  That tree has colored lights on it.  The family room has a tree with colored lights and that is my country tree.  Most of the ornaments on that tree are ones that I have made over the years.  Some are patchwork quits squares. It has fake popcorn, lots of garlands of beads, raffia. It was a productive weekend.
