I dreamed about this idea the other night, so as soon as I got up I had to paint it. There is something kind of peaceful about it, if that makes sense. I'm sure we all pray for the safe return of our military personnel and think of them often, especially during the holiday season.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I guess we are all ready for the holiday "crunch" with our calendars overflowing with school and church concerts, banquets, and fund raisers, and family and work functions as well! The hustle and bustle is upon us, so brace yourself--and try to take time to appreciate the simple things, like family, friends and simple togetherness.

Cute painting Cris! It reminds me of Ivonne of Crackling Crows..Her husband is in Iraq.

I'm so glad you found me so that I could find you! I am in love with the kitty Christmas tree painting. It made me laugh because we have had some cat/tree accidents over the years.
Thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog.
Happy Holidays!
