Latest Painting, Mixed Media Abstract

Yesterday, I said to my oldest son, "watch this..."  I brought my newly completed painting to my yountest son, who is 6 and a half.  "What do you think of this, Ethan?" I asked, expecting for certain that he would make a screwed up face and say something like, "weird" or just simply shake his head at me.

What I got was the complete opposite...His eyes popped, his arms flew up in the air with the exclamation, "I LOVE IT!!!!  That is soooooo beautiful, Mom!  I can't believe you made that, WOW!!!!"   Kids never cease to amaze me, and as I learned for myself, you just never know what reaction you are going to get!

My Sweet Kitten, Jingles

Yesterday morning I spent working on a watercolor of my kitten, Jingles.  I did it on an 1/8 sheet of 140 lb watercolor paper.  What do you think?

Funky Handpainted Wine Glasses

I had fun creating these wine glasses.  A coworker and friend of mine made the suggestion to me that I just absolutely HAD to create these wine glasses.  Well, I just had no choice but to make them...hand painted, with funky designs on the stem...I loved the idea right away.  I ran to Michaels, did some research, bought the best materials (of course, nothing but the best!) and began to paint.  I hope you enjoy them, too.  Tell me what you think!

Greeting Cards, anyone?

My Artfire Shop

One of my favorite things about Christmas and the whole holiday season is receiving Christmas cards. I love it...I get so excited when I go to the mailbox and, there it is. A perfect crisp envelope addressed to the MacDonald family. The excitement builds as I try to guess who sent it. Sometimes it is obvious, by the return address, but sometimes, the sender can be quite mysterious! Putting only their address or no return address at all.

Sometimes cards are from far away, with long letters of their events of the past year, sometimes just a signature. Some cards are from people who live reasonably close by but don't see too often. And some cards are from people I see every day. They are all beautiful and it means so much to hear how loved ones, family and friends are doing. It is such a thoughtful thing to do, to send a card. It is a time of year when there is constant hustle and bustle. "Time! I don't have enough time!" is a common complaint. But, somebody took the time to send a note, in a simple card and say, I am thinking of you. What a beautiful gift.

And here is Snow in the Birches

So, on that note, if you happen to be looking for Holiday cards, I just so happen to have some for sale on Artfire.  Both images here are prints of my most recent watercolor paintings. I was especially happy with the poinsettia, I hope you like them, too.  You can click on either one to see my shop.

I certainly hope your holidays are warm and joyous and thank you for reading my blog.  Please feel free to drop a note and share your thoughts, I would love to hear from you.
