This painting was created as a Christmas card a few years ago… perhaps in 2010. At the time I was painting this, the eldest boy was polishing a piano piece for his winter recital. I’m sure you’ll be humming the melody for “Christmas Time is Here” by the Vince Guaraldi Trio while you think about the forlorn little tree that Charlie Brown rescued.
A certain relation asked for some of my paintings to be shown and this is part of the reason for this website. I’m sure others reasons will develop but here’s the start. This will be the first on the new site. Yes, I know it isn’t Christmas today. I’ve chosen this one as the first because it looks full of promise… and spring thaw just around the corner. I love winter when there’s lots of snow to play in. Love it, love it, love it. But now we have slop and ice and yuck. I am very much ready for spring.
