This was a fun one to paint. I tried to concentrate on the abstract shapes, trusting that the total effect would look convincing. So often I think I'm abstracting, only to end up with more realism than I wanted.
This is the first year we will be spending Christmas here in Arizona, away from family. We do have plans with extended family here though- some of my husband's cousins. After Christmas we will have house guests for much of the time until we leave in mid January. I have been spending time at the fabulous clay studio here rather than painting, as anything I make there will need time to dry and then to fire and glaze and fire again. Painting may have to wait until I return to my studio in Seattle.
