How do people paint and get ready for Christmas? I do not know. For me, it’s one or the other. I’m enjoying Christmas more after the fact than before. All the hectic-ness is over and this week between Christmas and the New Year is always a nice reprieve for us. It has snowed twice, which slows things down even more. My favorite Christmas present: time to be still and quiet, time to reflect on God’s goodness and what Christ did for all of us…every living soul.

This was a fun painting to do. I have a very large collection of pretty paper and it’s about time I use it up (so I can buy more!) I call it Happiness because I was happy working on it and it makes me happy to look at it. I hope it does you, too.

Limes. One of my favorite fruits. I love it squeezed in my water, all over any kind of Mexican food, and especially in a real fruit, pulp-and-all popsicle. Makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

This round bale is in the meadow behind my house. I love how it looks in all kinds of weather and have countless pictures of it in snow, fog, etc. This picture was painted in the late afternoon when the sun was lighting up the tops of the grass in front of the bale.

> sold I finally did it. I’ve opened an eBay store and will begin listing my paintings for auction as I get them painted. It is time to get serious about my painting career (other than just in my mind) and this is the next step. This painting is my first listing. And this post is my trial run for linking, etc. Here we go……..

“Antique Breeze” 6″x6″, oil, $120. Available at River Oaks Gallery, Abilene Tx

I love old things, usually more than new. Old fans are prettier and quieter. This one reminds me of spending the night at my grandmother’s house with my cousins when we were really little. We’d all sleep in the same bed, facing the same direction, scratching each other’s backs. Then, everyone would turn over and repeat. I think Mamaw was always in the middle so that her back got scratched from both directions. She deserved it. Window open, fan blowing, sweet memories….

“New Mexico Apple” oil, 6″x6″ $120. sold

My daughter and her fiance’ brought a sack of apples back from his hometown in New Mexico this fall. I nabbed this one because of the still-attached leaves and it waited patiently in my refrigerator until I had time to paint it. Too pretty to eat.
