I had forgotten how good it feels to just sit and paint, no real thought about the outcome. Feeling free to explore ideas that come to me. It’s almost meditative. I was busy with other creative projects and frankly let procrastination get in the way. But now I’m committed to creating daily. I’ve enjoyed painting holiday illustrations the past few years. It’s a fun way to celebrate the Christmas season.
I’ve made my illustrations into holiday cards available on Zazzle:
And many of the illustrations are available for download in my Etsy shop for use in your creative projects.
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. Usually the holiday craziness takes over my life. For me writing that I’m going to do something holds me accountable. And having online friends who are drawing and painting along is a HUGE dose of extra motivation.
It’s not too late to join in. Even if you do just one day, it would be so fun to have you join in! Tag adventmcr when posting.
