It's Almost Christmas!

Only 5 days until the big day.  I'm sort of organized.  Still need to make some cookies.  My stockings are hung by the chimney with care and I hope St. Nick will remember me this year.  He is usually very good to me.  Not that I need anything.  My life is a blessing in a million ways.  I hope all of you enjoy all the blessings this season.  Take care and see you in the new year.

Baby it's Cold Outside!

It's really cold in my neck of the woods.  No snow yet.  But it feels like a ton of snow will be coming any minute.  My house is all decorated for the holidays and is nice and cozy. So, let it snow!  Wait, do I have cookies and cocoa ?

Santa is Coming and he's got a tree!

We are finally putting up our tree tonight.  It's huge!  My wonderful son Todd went out and picked out our tree this year. He is wonderful in every way.  He is not perfect but he's very close.  However, Todd got us a noble fir that is 14 feet tall.  My ceiling is 12 feet tall.  So, we will be doing a bit of cutting and maneuvering at our house.  If we can get it in the house.  Stay tuned I will give updates as the holiday continues.

Holiday Show and Sale

Just finished my yearly holiday art show and sale.  52 paintings!  Yes, that's what I said 52 paintings.  They range in size from 4x4 up to 48x48.  All were created on canvas in acrylic.  They turned out very whimsical and colorful.  I guess that's a good thing.  Anyway, they are all hung and ready for sale.  Now, I just hope someone will buy them.  They are being shown at Sybaris in downtown Albany, Or.  If you happen to be wandering around downtown, I hope you'll stop by and take a look.
