Silent Night

Silent Night--4 by 6 watercolor
Christmas has arrived in the country where Jesus was born. The favorite Christmas carol of all time so captures the hope of the season. Here's what I see.

Merry Christmas to all.

  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Your watercolors certainly got me homesick for New Mexico. Something about adobe and snow are just meant for each other. Plus I miss the lumanarios. Our whole neighborhood in Albuquerque put them out. They were and are the best Christmas decorations I've ever seen.
