Merry Christmas Ristra

We have had a quiet Christmas here, the kids are home and we’re all sleeping in late, reading books we didn’t have time for during the year, and just enjoying being together.  I have been painting though, and this is one started plein air in my courtyard when the afternoon soon was hitting the ristra on either side of gate.  I had fun making the background by awakening the colors of the ristra by running a damp brush over the edge.

I hope you all had an enjoyable time with friends and family.  It’ll be time soon to gear up for the new year, which for me means exhibiting eight pieces at the Alliance Francaise art show at EPCC Administrative Offices at Viscount.  The opening is January 6 from 7 – 9. Hope to see you there!

It also means painting 30 paintings in 30 days during January for the twice annual challenge I do.  Stay tuned!
