It was really great to see many of you again at my Open House. For those who didn't make it, this page shows you the new paintings that were on display for the first time. Three of the paintings are another adventure into impressionism for me, with palette knives and oil on canvas. It is a style that I really like and I'm sure you will see more of it in the next year. There also a couple of portraits, one is of our new Grandson, Colby, and I just know you will see more of him in the upcoming year. There is a painting of our cat Max, and I predict you will see less of Max since Colby has arrived. And for those who know me, life is not complete without flowers.
Now, with the website up to date, with the art orders finished, and Christmas shopping almost done, I'm looking forward to a break. It's a special time of the year in many ways. It's a fun time with family and friends, my first Christmas as a Grandma, and a time to read a few books. Also, it's a time to review the last year and its goals and plan and set goals for the next year, but most of all, a time to remember and thank God for giving us Christmas, the greatest gift of all.
May you have a wonderful Christmas and a blessed new year. Julia
