I know that the Holidays just ended and you probably don't want to think about it for a looong time. The decorations have been taken down and put away and life goes on. The stores are already stocking Valentine's Day items - yikes.
You might want to keep in mind an idea for next Holiday Season, though.
This is a commission that I created for a charming Texas couple to use for their Christmas card. They are newlyweds who wanted to mark their first year together in their new home.
If you'd like information on commissioning something similar OR a painting of your home, pet or favorite things - please write me here for more information.

What a beautiful card illustration...and I think it's never too early to think of the next Christmas. The days seem to fly like never before.

Your work is so beautiful. I love what you have in your Etsy store. funny about the Home Depot coupon. We just used one today as my washer decided to pick now to completely go kaput. Always love to save a little money.
