Merry Christmas

Hope everyone is having a very merry Christmas! 🎄🌟😀 – Eileen Day 25 . The countdown is complete. Day 24 was just a quick ink sketch of an angel. Christmas Eve is a busy day. Some of my favorites from the countdown. Which was your favorite?

Silver Bells

Day 22 of the Christmas countdown. Silver bells, silver bells… One of my favorite Christmas songs! I drew the bell in Adobe draw on my iPad. I thought I’d do more digital drawings this month, but instead spent 21 days working in watercolor and ink. Carol is painting along with me. See her beautiful bellsContinue reading “Silver Bells”

Mrs. Claus

Day 21 in the Christmas countdown. She’s the woman behind the man in the red suit. I suspect she deserves a lot more credit than she gets. 😂 My childhood favorite Christmas movie is “The Year without a Santa Claus.” Mrs. Claus has a big role in this movie, as well as Mother Nature. MotherContinue reading “Mrs. Claus”

A visit with Santa

Day 20 in the Christmas countdown. This was done from a photo of my youngest visiting the Santa at the local nursery. I wish the other 2 had been there because I still have to get this year’s photo. It’s getting a little awkward because the two high schoolers can’t all fit in the chairContinue reading “A visit with Santa”

Santa’s bag

Day 19 Christmas countdown. It’s so close! I want to scream, “SANTA!” like Buddy the Elf. If you haven’t seen “Elf” stop reading this post and immediately download it and watch it. It is hysterical. When I was little Christmas took forever to get here. As an adult it seems to come pretty quickly. MyContinue reading “Santa’s bag”

Candle

Day 17 of the Christmas countdown. This snowman candle holder is one of a set. They are actually one of my favorite Christmas decorations. I bought them probably over 10 years ago on a day trip to Mystic, Connecticut with friends. I can’t believe I’ve been able to paint every day so far this month.Continue reading “Candle”

Christmas Lights

Day 16 in the Christmas countdown. These big lights remind me of when I was little. I remember my dad would have the strings of lights strewn across the living room, trying to find the one bad bulb that was affecting the whole string. Nowadays I think I’d chuck them and buy a new set.Continue reading “Christmas Lights”
