Both these pictures were done this summer. The winter scene, oil on canvas, is based on a photo I took in January, and the summer scene, from a different perspective, is based on plein-air viewing. I have used the snow scene for our Christmas card.

The Art Nouveau watering can is a drawing I did in pastel during the summer.

Still life with brass watering can

I thought it might be acceptable to reprise my old reading of T. S. Eliot’s ‘The Journey of the Magi ‘.

Happy Christmas!
