From a Spontaneous Photo Shoot at Dusk to Holiday Cards

I was hoping for a fantastic sunset as I drove home from errands, but no luck tonight.

The Storybook Christmas Eve

It’s the view of the houses behind me on the night of a heavy snowstorm, but if any painting I’ve done ever looked like the classic Christmas Eve scene this one is it. What I said the night I painted it, “If snow is what you’ve got, then snow is what you paint—I’m going to […]
