...and that little something would be "time". The Christmas season feels closer to me when I'm creating something. It is such a wonderful time of year for creating and yet is the most difficult time to complete anything. I was determined to reclaim some time to do something that was not required but simply for the joy of it. Painting at least three seasonal subjects would make me happy. I may not get to finish this one until early next week after I return from Boston but I'm quite content to see it on my easel and if I'm lucky I'll start another.
