Art Notes

I experience layers of memory as I walk down Spirit of Christmas, the first in my new Christmas series. A wonderful evening mail coach carries trumpet-blowing heralds across the weathered stone bridge. Welcoming lights pour from the windows of the whimsical cottages.

Spirit of Christmas is inspired by the classic holiday icons of image makers like Currier and Ives. I hope it awakens your own deepest memories of the "season of lights".
