It’s sunny, and I have the window open. It’s nice painting with oils and being able to breath in the fresh outside air. The best.
Work in Progress. #Wip
A little this, and a little that. I really enjoy decorating for Christmas.
I love this time of year… singing Christmas music… decorating the store, and my home…. baking… spending time with family…
I also love that I get to bring Santa back out. This painting of “Santa” has been a great focal point for our Mantel the last few years. I painted it in University… and others may have their own interpretation, but this was a real model, and he really did have a beard like that, and a red and white striped shirt. He was Santa in the off season.
I love long weekends. It’s enough time to be lazy and productive.
Feeling thankful for this extra time to work on my art—and clean the house (I even clean and organized my kitchen cupboards), spending lazy time napping on the couch, baking, family, reacquainting myself to tea time, cuddling with my dogs, appreciating fall colours, my handsome man (who drew and painted too for the first time in a long time!). 🙂
A nice day to not leave the house and just make art.
