Festivus for the Rest of Us!

Art

When you’re a “maker” of any kind, the holidays are the best way to add special touches to gifting. For the past few years, I have created original artwork for holiday cards. This year, I got ambitious and created an acrylic painting on canvas that was featured on cards. My favorite part of creating this was adding touches of metallic copper paint.

Now that (most) of friends and family received their cards, I can share the original painting. My inspiration for these winter holidays is the connection these rituals have with nature. Notice the toadstools, red squirrel, fox, and snowy owl. Without further adieu, Creatures in Winter.
