Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a nice December. This month I always feel frazzled and stressed trying to buy presents get them packed and shipped at the post office with all of the other frazzled people. I'm approaching the end of that phase and to get myself in the mood for the more peaceful part of Christmas, I wanted to post some art and photos.

This is a drawing of my daughter, Tessa decorating an imaginary Christmas tree. She is constantly rearranging the bottom three feet of ornaments on our tree. This and the next four images are from my 100 Trees project. I'm having a great time drawing a tree picture in my sketchbook every day!

Here are some winter pines from rubber stamps I carved. I've been trying to figure out different ways to make pine trees instead of my usual boring default way to draw them.

This one might turn into a holiday card for next year!

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree, how distracting are your patterns.

Some winter days you don't really know what is sky and what is ground and the colors are all subtle shades of white, blue, and brown. We always have a white Christmas where I live!

This is a view across Steamboat Springs, Colorado toward the ski area. The low cloud on the mountain is where the snow guns are making snow. This hill is right behind my neighborhood where we walk and sled all the time.

Here's our Christmas tree with my two cuties.

This photo was taken for us by my friend and fantastic photographer, Karen G. Schulman.

I hope you all have a great holiday season. Merry Christmas!
