Lucia and the Dala Horse

This watercolor was created for our 2003 Christmas card. I used one of my many St. Lucia figurines for the still life set up. The blue Dala horse came from Sweden.

I Wish you a Beary Christmas

I painted this Christmas bear in oil to be used for my Christmas card in 2007. He doesn't show up to his best advantage in this photo. He is quite striking against the dark background and framed in a black frame with a touch of red.

Flowers for December

Each year I paint a picture to be used as my Christmas card. This watercolor of winter flowers and cinnamon sticks was our Christmas greeting several years ago.

This is my grandaughter, Hannah, climbing a tree in Lake Tahoe. Hannah celebrated her 16th birthday last month. I struggled with this painting. I had just recovered from Valley Fever and had not painted for most of that year. My next painting of Hannah will be in her beautiful gown she wore to the Homecoming Dance. She was honored to represent her Sophomore Class in the Homecoming Court for Ronald Reagan High School.
