Merry Christmas all!
and may your new year be full of creativity,
good happenings and whatever else is dear to your heart.
I decided to paint something typical of winter in western Oregon, only I'm stretching it a little by adding the snow. Usually we get just a hand full of snowy days in the western valleys. We can always drive into the mountains and get more snow than any child could possibly wish for. When our girls were teenagers our favorite way to spend Christmas day was to drive to the rim of Crater Lake and cross-country ski along the rim.
As I type, big foofy flakes are falling. They aren't sticking yet, but it does give a Christmassy feel to our soggy world.
