I think you can always tell that the holiday's are right around the corner because the Christmas bazaars start. This last Saturday I participated in my first ever holiday bazaar. While I was a little frazzled trying to get ready for this it wasn't bad at all once I had enough prints, cards and originals complete and ready for the public. The only thing was that not a lot of public showed up.
This is a small 5" x 7" Poinsettia I painted in preparation of the holiday's.
This next one is a little larger. Approximately 6" x 18". I have cropped it in the scanner just so it is doesn't look that large. Both look so pretty in gold frames.
With my first bazaar behind me I am now concentrating on a commission I agreed to do as a surprise gift.
