Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


It wasn't until Zacchaeus' heart changed that he was able to help Nodi, the little shrew in need... 

I haven't been able to paint too much lately due to watching our little son but I have been able to pick up some paper and draw a little more. I've been really inspired lately to create imagery that depicts friendship, caring companionship and yes, all set in a wintery landscape. It's so important to reach out to others in need, especially in a world of so much turmoil. 

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May 2011 bless you in a special way.  This image was created using pencil and gesso on mat board. It measures 8x10 inches.

I find this drawing to be so charming--and the story is lovely.

This fills my eyes--which is the greatest compliment I can give.

Love all the new illustrations, seems like forever since I last visited with so much to catch up on.
Couldn't let Christmas pass without stopping by to wish you and the family all the best and to thank you for bringing so much joy to me through your art.
May you all be blessed with the gift of joy, love, peace and contentment this Christmas.
Warmest Hugs,
