More on clouds and wanting lights

(I'll try taking a new shot tomorrow
in daylight.  It will be better.)
One of my friends with a birthday near the beginning
of December, decorates with strings of tiny, white lights
around the inside doorways in her house at Christmas.
It's a sensational touch, and makes her house look
fabulously upbeat even in a snowstorm.  I unpacked a
new bunch of little, clear lights today, circled them around me
after I plugged them in and sang a very corny version
of You light up my life to Steven as he came into the
kitchen.  Time to decorate!  I hold off until December
first, but it's hard because I love the smell of pine,
and the look of the lights on the porch shining
in the front window of the studio.

Our flower store friends have told me what kind of
wreathe I like (pine) and have ordered one for me
without asking me. I can check that off the list.

A few years ago my daughter-in-law decorated
with white star lights from Ikea -- beautiful.
I bought some too and I plugged those in in
the studio today, because they are
there as decoration year round.
So we're off to the races. The holiday feeling
is creeping in.

Tonight I'm showing you the next stage
on my cloud painting, and here are some guests
visiting my work at Studio Vogue Gallery
Guests check out my cloudscapes
at Studio Vogue on Friday.
Have an enjoying-the-moment-day

WOW! What a fantastic show. The Gallery was full of beautiful art work, especially by you. Thankful for the opportunity I had to see the Ocean series, my personal favorite. Your artistic style always leaves me in awe, the color and life you portray is inspiring. All in all it was a great show I’m glad I didn’t miss it!
