Christmas Day musings

Today's watercolor, Christmas Day and the muse, 8" x 10", 300# d'Arches
It's a good day to sleep in late, to have a hearty breakfast and plenty of coffee by the fire, to open presents, to reflect on the past year, on friends, family and loved ones, on travels, on books, on the quietness of some slow time. That's when the muse awakes, and takes over the writing pen, or the paintbrush.

  1. Merry Christmas Terry, this is about the only day where I have seen Heather take an afternoon nap.
