Under the Tree

watercolor 7" x 10" $75

The challenge this week for the daily paintworks is to do a painting of the Christmas aftermath. example: the bows and the wrapping. Well, the challenge was posted while we were celebrating with my family and my husband's family, so I did not want to do a painting of my recycle bins. Anything to show after Christmas is the topic and I painted this little painting to depict it. These are actually the gifts that I have left under the tree to still give to some of my friends. Maybe you are one of them??? The two little kissing angels are about 40 years old and they belonged to my aunt. She gave them to me about 25 years ago.

Santa is Tired!!!

5" x 7"

I hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday. I don't know about you, but 2 parties in a row and I am pooped. The next one will be even bigger than today. That will be the party for my students on Jan. 7. We had 22 people here today of all ages and it was a 7 hour party. Lots of food left. Now I do not have to cook or bake for awhile and I can soon get back to painting.

Frozen Memories III

watercolor 14" x 21"

Continuing on with my reflective series, this finds me painting the Little Calumet River. It is pretty in the winter but caused a lot of damage a few years ago when we had massive flooding from it during some summer storms. It runs all through the neighboring towns.

Stay warm....

Frozen Memories II

watercolor 15" x 19"

I didn't plan on doing a series of reflections...but then the challenge this week on daily paintworks was to do reflections in the water. So watch for more of them because I love to paint snow and this is a great time to catch those reflections in the water.

Stay warm.

Frozen Memories

19" x 15"

I thought it would be ok to paint a snow scene since we had our first snow fall yesterday. Now you can not blame me for the snow.

All of my trees are all up and tonight I finished the village. It is hard to put up a whole city under the tree. But it is now done and I can sit back and enjoy it. All my baking will begin soon....

No Football Today-Soldier's Field, Chicago

10" x 14"

Bet you wondered what had happened to me that I didn't post for a while....Well, I was busy putting up Christmas decorations. I have trees in every room and I finally got them all up last night. I missed not being able to paint. But it is looking a bit festive in my house now.

This is a painting as you go into the city of Chicago. Soldier's field is the stadium where the Chicago Bears football team play. It is really a neat shaped building.

Well back to decorating for me....
