I don't have a new painting tonight, but I wanted to
wish you Happy December.  Alyson Stanfield wrote a
Thanksgiving weekend piece called A Feast for 
the eyes: Food in Art this past weekend.  She asked
artists to share their food paintings and I posted my
painting of Breakfast at the Skylight Diner NYC there.

Whatever your religious or spiritual beliefs,
December's a lovely month.  Lights are starting to
show up in the dark.  Fantasy and fun is in the cold air.
The decorations in store windows are astounding
and inspiring.  It's a beautiful month -- and
at the end the inspiration of a whole new
fresh 12 months, stretching out full of promise.

I am a fan of Christmas, even though I'm not
religious.  I love the music, the presents, the
food, the parties and seeing friends.  Plus a short
break from work for all of us is a treat.

Have a getting-ready-for fun day.

What a sumptuous ensemble! As well as being a feast for you at the time it is a feast for my eyes now! Lovely work as always Barbara! Enjoy your cold and twinkling December!

Thanks so much Wendy,

You always make me smile. It has been a lovely month so far ;-)

Written beautifully. You encapsulated my feelings. Who couldn't love all the bright, colourful lights on these dark, cold nights?

Hi Kim,

We still haven't started decorating here. Renovations, new furniture coming, the house in a scramble, and now both of us have colds. But...I am craving it all, and this is the week! It is just beautiful driving, or walking around the city. So inspiring. And now with the snow, even better.

Happy month.
