When the boxes of Christmas decorations pile up so high at the Lodge we can’t see our paintings bulletin board, it is time to start painting Christmas cards! If the ladies want to send them, they must be painted. These are all Carolyn’s demos because the Lodge painters took theirs home.
Just outside the windows where we paint at the lodge there is a mountain ash tree. In the fall and early winter it is covered in bright red berries (and sometimes gobs of snow). Then two weeks ago a hoard of waxwings came and took all the berries. Gone are the bright berries… except for the ones captured forever in our paintings, ha ha!
