Have Yourself a Merry little Christmas ...

Red, Red, Red  ~ watercolor

This watercolor painting is so pretty in its gold frame and inner gold matting.  Red and green could have easily made this a cold painting but with the pink of the under leaves and the gold surrounding the painting it warms up a room.  Red, Red, Red is soon to be living in a new home.

Its been busy around here with Christmas soon to arrive and lots of socializing going on.  I'm still in the process of learning something about oils.  I've recently purchased a dvd to see how the big kids paint.  I've purchased some new oil painting art supplies ... an early Christmas gift to myself.  I'm reading the books I own on oil painting and also trying to learn to mix my oil paints to achieve different  colors.  I have a lot to learn but I'm enjoying the journey.
Merry Christmas ...


  1. Merry Christmas to you Nancy - Thanks for being a 'long distance blog friend'.

    I love your painting, it's lovely!

    I look forward to seeing you play with oils - hope you have fun! As I keep saying, I really need to spend some time in front of the easel, instead of sitting in the recliner!

    Happy Holidays!
