Upon a Midnight Clear

I've been thinking a lot about Christmas lately. Someone told me the other day that there was only 13 weeks til Christmas? Can it really be so!!! Amazing.

This first one is a little fella acting in his first Christmas pageant. He's a Shepherd boy. I love the look of awe on his face. This is my first little boy! I'm quite excited about that and have already sketched another boy, which is quite cute. I can't wait to make him come to life with my paints.

This second one is a little girl acting as an Angel in the same pageant. I kind of think she's not actually too sure she really wants to be up there with everyone looking at her, but she's doing it anyways. What do you think?

She Had a Heart of Gold

Here's my latest piece. I call it "She Had a Heart of Gold." I love how it turned out. It's been done on an 8 by 8 inch boxed canvas in acrylics and the sides are painted and trimmed with gold and brown polka dots. No need for a frame for this one. You can hang it straight away. I just love the little sparrow talking to her on the window sill as she sits there in thought. I like think that her heart of gold goes a lot deeper than that gold necklace around her neck . . . it must do, or the bird wouldn't be so comfortable sitting there so close . . .

I'll be placing the original for sale in my Etsy shop later on today.
