It is the time of year we reach out to friends, bring our families closer together if we can, and are extra nice to strangers. Even if we are remiss in some areas the rest of the year, at least we do it the once! And what a year it has been.
For me, it has been a good year. I have painted a number of paintings I am happy with, I am happy to have sold several pieces of my art, I’ve been lucky enough to do some traveling to far away places, I’ve made new friends, and I’ve been able to spend time with several of the special people in my life. I hope your year has been good too. But if it hasn’t, remember: a new year is coming, and when things are bad, they will get better. They will.
Now I am going to share with you one of the pieces I painted as a result of my trip west. This was a scene on one of our hikes. It was in the Valley of the Five Lakes – the same hike I talked about in “A watercolour inspired by this summer’s trip to Jasper“. This painting is called Fourth Lake, Jasper. It is amazing how the scenes change along a single hike and depending on the direction you look.
If by any chance you are still gift shopping and you wish to browse my gallery (watercolours and fractal art available!), please know you are welcome – just contact me here or send me a facebook message, or phone me (519-879-9903) (be sure to leave a message if I don’t answer!). Don’t hesitate to ask for an evening appointment. If I don’t see you, I wish you all the best this holiday season.
