My husband and I are just back from a lovely Christmas in California. We visited with family in Oakland, Lincoln and Healdsburg before returning to Oakland for a final visit with grandboy Max and his parents.
Here are the two iPad images I made to use as Christmas cards, followed by another image for those of a different religious tradition or for use as New Year card.
I have to give ‘The Baby’ top billing — though I was inspired to paint this rendition of a statue after painting the two statues below. (I fondly think of this vignette, based on an antique shop window I saw in New York, as ‘Two Marys and the Baby’.)
And this cheerful sunflower may be just what we need to banish all wintry gloom and guide us into thoughts of the New Year and new Spring coming around the bend. I hope each of you is enjoying this special time of year. All my best!
