Scenes of Christmas

Haven’t been painting much. My life has been so busy lately getting ready for Christmas… I’ve had to reserve my creative energies for cookie-making, decorating, and pointing my camera phone around, trying to capture the beauty of the season. Here are some of those images for you to enjoy…

Happy Holidays!
