Art Notes

Home for the Holidays is an example of memory and imagination blending together to create an idyllic vision. Who hasn't daydreamed about taking a frosty sleigh ride to visit friends for a bit of Christmas Eve cheer? Presents will be exchanged, prayers offered, and perhaps a mug of steaming cider will send you on your way. By the way, my three year old daughter, Merritt, is a wonderful model for paintings like this, and in tribute to her efforts, her name adorns the mailbox to the right of the sleigh.
