2017 Christmas Release

Creating winter/ Holiday themed paintings was an idea I got last year. However, I didn’t have enough time to create the pieces in time for the holiday season with all the commissions I had been hired to do. This year I remembered to make more time for creating them before the holiday commission rush came in.

There were two themes that I came up with for this year. The first was wreaths hanging on a front door. I came up with this idea while searching for houses when we were getting ready to move to Montana. I love brightly colored doors especially when they are decorated for holidays. When we would look at houses I would envision how cute the house would look with a brightly colored door all decorated for Christmas. Since I currently get to live in a house with a boring white front door I decided to live vicariously though my paintings.

The second idea that came to my mind was Red cardinals. I love Cardinals and how striking their coloring is against the muted colors of winter. Red cardinals always make me think of winter time. Generally, its only male cardinals are shown in pictures because they are much more vibrant.  However, I found their female counterparts to have  beautiful coloring with tones of yellow and orange. This yearI decided to showcase the beauty of both.

These five paintings that I created will be available both prints and as Christmas cards with several options of sizes. This is my first time offering cards with a printed image of my artwork. They are printed on a smooth cardstock and turned out absolutely beautiful. The smooth paper allows the details of the painting to really be show cased. The cards come with white envelopes of the appropriate size.

Some of other new developments is the sizing available for the Giclee prints. I will be offering several of these new prints in square dimensions both 8×8 and 12×12″.  The square dimensions will add more creativity for creating a holiday Gallery wall. I will post more on this later.

I hope you enjoy these new paintings as much as I do and that they help put you in the holiday spirit.
