Sheep again

 My cousins Farm... sheep and snow... love the combo.. and love her photos...they inspire me to paint 
 always... I used to be stuck on birds...but after seeing these black faced sheep.. I just can't get enough 
 of them... 
love using my wash pencil... and charcoal pencil.. great textures

Bits of the Season

 The Sunsets have been spectacular... Winter has the best Sky... it was actually more intense than the photo here...but just took it with my cell phone...
 Decided to do batches of biscotti for gifts this year.. I made gingerbread and cranberry almond... they are great with a good cup of coffee
 made many Christmas cards... sold some and used some.. love sending cards...
 This reminds me of the stable where baby Jesus was born... it is actually my cousins barn in Maine, her sheep waiting to go outside
 I have done several seasonal paintings.. sparrows are always my favorite...


My daughter's Mantle.. we made the magazine trees.. lots of fun...

Christmas projects

 The Hanging of the greens..started... and we had fun making wreaths... using what we had and foraging
 what we needed......greens... It was so fun.... then onto card making...
 I have a fun group of cards this year...and thinking up more...they can be found on my Etsy shop 
 www.etsy.com/shop/watercolortales ,.... I think sending cards beats just sending emails.... 
 There is nothing like opening mail....and hanging up a beautiful Christmas Card.....
