Yikes! Christmas is Around the Corner!

Joyful Snowman

I have been asked to speak to the Lakewood Art League this Monday and offer a design for raffle. 

My brain went dead. If I offered a letter that would only appeal to those with a connection to that letter.

As I started to work on some ideas I was also slowly panicking at the idea that Christmas is making its approach quickly. So I figured since Christmas around the corner, maybe a snowman would be good for raffle. So I dug up a design a did years back and updated it to give it new life and cut me some slack in the lack of time department. So here he is.

Just 39 days till Christmas!

Tea Pot Glory

Tea Pot Glory

I have had artist block. 

I am blaming it on day light savings time. 

I hate the shorter days and the gray skies we have been having lately. My body has not acclimated to the cooler weather. I have just gotten over a miserable cold. Norman, my husband, keeps quoting "Game of Thrones" saying "Winter is Coming". This does not help my mood.

So I needed to do something bright and cheery. Maybe this is dedicated to all the herbal teas I have been drinking for my cold and sinus, but I do love the fall flowers, the oranges, reds, and yellows of the leaves, and the heavenly scents of herbal teas.

Stay well my friends.
