Hi All. In case any of you wondered if I had dropped off the edge of the world I wanted to say I'm fine. Some time back I got fed up with Blogger and wandered away and just didn't come back. I haven't done much painting lately and I felt that my blog was becoming a photo documentary of the minutiae of my life so I quit. But I am fine. I still work at the arboretum and I still work with the seniors at the nursing home, among other things. I may be back from time to time if I have anything worthwhile to say.
That said, here is a watercolor pencil painting of my Caribbean Christmas Tree. I have cats and a traditional Christmas tree with all its little hanging and dangling toys is just too tempting for them so I decorate my artificial tree in my living room. The decorations are up high enough that they don't mess with it. I use ribbon streamers, handmade ornaments that have been given to me, Mardi Gras beads that came from Las Vegas, and white lights to adorn this tiny tree and it suits me just fine.
I'm wishing all of you a Happy Holiday Season and a very good New Year!
