 This took a LOT longer than I thought it would.  I finished it for my brother and his wife seconds before they walked in the door for our Christmas celebration.  I was sprinkling the glitter as they were walking up the driveway!  My Lovely Brother in Law was leaning over my shoulder taunting me the whole time.  Gotta love the Brother-in-Law! It is a law?  You have to love him? :)

This is the biggest tree painting I've done so far.  I really like the size...I think I will have to go and get more watercolor blocks in this size.  I need to finish my uncles painting and he is getting married so I will do one for his fiance Lisa.
Looking forward to working this year!  I'm going to take my art seriously...I've put time aside, like a job, to work on it!  Wish me luck.  :)

Ooooh! Last minute! Cool as a cucumber, you make it look so easy. There is so much movement in this iamge. It actually prompts me to move my body when viewing it. Great to see you again.

I love this! Did your brother jump up and down (I guess that would be undignified)? I wish I could see it in person, I love all the movement in it! Happy New Year, and I am completely with you on setting aside time for art - xox! Pam
