Inspired by snow

I finally took a picture of the snow we have been having .... the first snows are so beautiful..
I love the texture it makes as the white falls against the dark branches... so many shades of browns


and deep sepia that contrast against the white...and then there is the purple grey sky...
It all just begs to paint it..and so I did...
Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family..and now we settle in for a long winter... but don't miss its beauty....

Busy Brush

With Christmas just next week... I finally got time to sit and do some small gifts...
Listening to Christmas music,,, or a Dickens Christmas story on line while painting makes for a fun evening.

I stepped outside and there is just a light snow falling... so had to add that to a few of the pictures...
I still have more to do...but will have to be another night... off to bed with a good book...

Christmas flowers

I thought you would enjoy seeing the flowers that are coming into the shop these days
The dept. is loaded...and it does look so festive. I am so blessed to work in a place that is constantly changing its beauty...


We are busy right now making tons of big bows to attach to the Pointsettas that decorate everywhere. Did you now there are several ways to pronounce that word...

Amaryllis is popular also...we have this one blooming in the shop, we have waited two months for it to bloom!!! worth the wait...



Get yourself some fresh flowers and bring them home to enjoy
guaranteed to make you smile :)

The Best Gift of all

December is here...and the pace gets exciting.... I have been so busy with work, and Christmas lists and Birthdays... I just don't have time to blog...


So this might be it for the month... I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas , and I pray that you will have special times with family and friends

Times to reflect on the Real meaning of Christmas , The Gift God has given us in His Son Jesus Christ... to have this gift is to have life....


"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. "
John 3:16
and again He said.
"I am the light of the world, Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life...."
John 8:12
I hope you open This Gift , this Christmas

Merry Christmas
