Warm Window

 

"Warm Window," 5 x 7 watercolor holiday greeting card

'
Tis the year, the season when we crave warmth these days as the days grow shorter, the nights colder.

In a year of pandemic disease, isolation, racism, hatred, violence and political sickness, we need it more than ever--a pet on our laps, a cozy fire in the fireplace, snuggling with a loved one, enjoying warm holiday lights.

I dream of being inside thick adobe walls catching  the evening sun in the deep blue sky of New Mexico, fresh snow outside, a Christmas tree, a window of warmth on the world.

Today's watercolor.
