POST CHRISTMAS POST


A commission I just finished painting last week

I hope you all had a nice Christmas! It was a gorgeous day here in Florida - sunny and in the mid 70's. For Christmas dinner, seafood replaced the traditional turkey (or worse still - ham! hate that stuff!) Instead of feeling groggy and slug-like post-meal, I felt energized and decided to take a turn around the neighborhood and get some exercise. For someone that used to have to wear socks to bed in the Winter, I am not about to take for granted the sheer luxury of wearing flip-flops in December. The ducks were out on the pond and the breeze was gently rustling the palms. Perfect! As much as I love my work, it is nice to have a couple of days that I don't have to pick up a paintbrush.

Sounds like your christmas day was almost an image of mine :)

That painting is ever so beautiful. Your attention to detail is incredible. I love the pink tufted settee.

Oh my, that is GORGEOUS! So beautiful.

Yeah, I have really enjoyed a couple (well, maybe more than a couple) of days off this holiday! I was completely disconnected to my blog and everyone else's and I somehow survived! It was actually heavenly to just be away, but at home in my pj's!

I am slowly emerging from my blogging slumber!

Happy New Year! Looking forward to a new year of inspiration from you!
