Holiday Eclipse

Paperwhite Narcissus, 6 x 6

Don't the holidays totally eclipse everything? Today was my first day back at the easel after several weeks of festivities and honestly, it was like starting over! After several wipeoffs of a larger canvas (and I mean multiple, full wipedowns), I decided to just try something small and ease my way back. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

PS - We had a wonderful Christmas visit with our family in Georgia - it was worth it! :)

Hi Laurel,

This has the feeling of spring. A sweet gift as I get ready to go out and clean the snow off my car.

Happy New Year,

Hi Laurel,
Very pretty! I haven't picked up a brush since before Thanksgiving either so I'm a little worried I've forgotten how to paint. But you obviously haven't!
Happy New Year,
Joan

Beautiful. I have some paperwhites blooming in my front yard. I hadn't planted them there, they just appeared this year. I've been thinking about painting them, and now I'm really inspired to do it. If I have time to paint tomorrow they will be it.

Beautiful work. Love the abstract qualities, and the color harmony.
