I also have a love of red and white textiles, and so I couldn’t resist wrapping up the baby in a beautiful red and white quilts. Quilts are difficult, I am not known for my exactness, and I am often in awe of the geometric skill that goes into quilt making.
And I dont know if you noticed— but Papa is also in this family scene, bringing in the Christmas tree from the woods, perhaps to decorate while the children are sleeping so they can wake up surprised on Christmas morning.
I think this will make a very sweet Christmas card, and that is my hope for it! I may try to squeeze in one more painting to offer for pre-ordering cards, and then set to work on that. My goal is to have the preorder start in early November so that they can get printed up and shipped to their proper places in time for holiday card exchanges.
I love Christmas cards,and the beautiful art that often have. Im so excited I get to make them, and that people all over the country (and world!) choose to use some of my paintings to wish those they love a merry holiday season.
Well, off I go to start the day— hope you enjoy this little piece of holiday cheer!~
