Merry and Bright

The title for this one is the same as the Christmas Holiday Card I'm sending out this year. Just ordered them so I hope they are back in time for me to mail them out (snail mail that is!).
Above is the card.

Here is the original painting:

You can see that it's a bit stark and featureless top and bottom. That was deliberate so that I could add lettering later. Obviously I won't sell this painting. I think Christmas paintings are a bit seasonal anyway.

It's so busy, busy, busy right now.
For the past 2 years I have been on a committee that welcomes new residents into our town.
This year I have offered to host a seasonal drinks party in my home - this weekend...gahh!  Lots to do to get ready for that.

Plus with Christmas coming up and guests arriving we have been trying to finish all of the odd jobs around the house. It's hard to fit in painting when you have other things to do.

Also just finished a big commission, which I will post soon.
