Greeting the Season


It is now acceptable to talk about Christmas. November departed with snow – just a dusting, but it doesn’t take much for me to get overexcited!

What with that and the mounting urgency to get some Christmas cards sorted, I found my way to this. There isn’t much more in the way of rationale, but who needs one at this time of year? The main attraction for me was the sky, and in fact I didn’t really intend for the landscape to even be there, or at least not one so populated – it rather pushed its way in. I find churches difficult and often frustrating from reference, so dreaming one up was perhaps both ludicrous and inspired (aha spire). The snowy conifers more than make up for any torment the tower caused.

After Thursday’s tease, I’m hoping that, just one day this winter, I’ll have an excuse to get the scarf and gloves out.

      Thanks so much, Sharon. I saw a similar pinkish sky on a card design and had to give it a go myself!

    Your painting makes me want to reach for my scarf, so I would say that`s a job well done. B

      Thanks, Thea! I hear that; autumn was quite peculiar here, and incredibly mild on the whole. The snow was a bit of a surprise!

    Ah, we’re of the same mind here. There is a chance of a dusting this weekend, and I know if it happens, I’ll just hunger for more.

    I’ll wish us both a blizzard!

      Ah, that’s great – and yes, let’s hope the dusting is just the beginning!

        I’m already doing my snow dance (and listening to ’50 Words for Snow’ by Kate Bush). 😉

        Aw, yes! I do love some Kate. If we get our wish, December Will Be Magic Again! 😉
