Work In Progress

I hope everyone's Thanksgiving was fun and spent with family and friends eating lots of turkey and pie. That's exactly how mine was. Now I have to get back to normal and stop eating so much. I also have to turn my thoughts to Christmas and all that goes along with it. I am determined not to get stressed out this year. I am going to enjoy Christmas and try to get into the Christmas Spirit. I usually have all my decorations down from the attic by now, so I am already behind. I do not care. I'm not going to let it bother me....small lol, more like a hah! I can't do it by myself any more. The boxes are too heavy and my back just will not let me.
I started this painting before Thanksgiving and I'm going to try to work on it today. I am itching to get back to the studio. It was nice to have a break from the art work and blog world. It's good to get away and fill the well so to speak. I'm aware of how I am enjoying the moment and living for today. I am just now learning how to do this. I'm the worlds worst at thinking too far ahead and dwelling on past problems. I know there is a happy medium. You can't not think of your future, but at the same time you can't forgo the day for thinking too much. So here's to living in the moment.


  1. Pretty! Fun colors for Christmas. Can't wait to see what you do next with it.

  2. I'm lovin' this.

    It could stand on its own as is, but sounds like you are planning to add something. Can't wait.

    Thanks for the visit to my blog and your nice comment.

  3. Charlie, your work is just awesome and so warm and inviting to the observer as well. I so love the colours you picked for this piece, also.

    Berries and wreaths... cranberries and other fruits. Candles and angels... this is what this work makes me think of.
