Painting of the Week – Cozy Christmas

Projecting Warmth

Projecting Warmth

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse…

No mouse would even twitch, with this great big cat on the couch!

This is my former cat “Ole” who starred in Where’s  Petunia?, one of my gold medal award winning Children’s books. Would you enjoy reading Samson’s Gift to a child this Christmas?

In Cozy Christmas, two main factors are projecting warmth in this scene: the warm dominant palette and the connected curvilinear lines. If you notice, no line is perfectly straight in this painting which relaxes the eye.





Locked in my studio wearing my mask,

If you need some art I’m up to the task!

My studio and website are open for business:

 I will sign and ship books to a family or child and get them to you in time if you order by Monday 6:00 am. Need stocking stuffers? My card packs are just perfect. Order three packs then indicate in notes – a pack you’d like FREE!

Are you in a hurry?  Order online & select Curbside Pick-up & your order will be ready to pick up!  It is not too late for me to ship either.
