What a beautiful tree!
My studio is in our former living room/dining room.
At certain times of year (like right now) the room has
to revert (for the most part) to its other use. And the
only possible room in the house to put up a Christmas
tree -- especially a huge, magnificent Fraser fir like this
year's tree, is our living room.
For the past week whenever I've had a minute I've been
moving the big paintings around, Steven's been putting new
hooks up in the rest of the house so we could clear
a space, and protect the paintings that have been living in
that corner of the studio.
Success. The tree is in, the lights are on, and tomorrow
perhaps my family will add the decorations that make
a beautiful tree like this one, even more spectacular.
If you are wondering how the Christmas shopping is
going, it has not really begun. School finished for me
last night, and I am still working on commissions. So..
watch out stores, in the hours allotted to me on Thursday
and Friday I will be shopping.
I may not be able to show you any work for the next few days
but I'll keep in touch.

She wants you to know it is mighty cold out,
and her feet are going numb.
Happy Holidays to everyone. It is a lovely time of year.
And to James Langston in Florida. Yes you have warm,
lovely weather, but you can't corner the market on warm
hearts. Canadians are a mighty friendly bunch too.
Today on the news one of our politicians said that Santa
Claus is Canadian. So there you go -- eh.
Have an enjoying wherever you live day,
