The Village - Holiday on Ice

It's such a festive time of year...and a busy one!  I finally found time to finish this painting, complete a few framing tasks and make Christmas cards.  

Recently I went to the Village and took quite a few pictures of people skating and added them to the photos I took at Thanksgiving with my four youngest grandkids who were also skating.   This painting is the result.  I even found space to add several other family members even though they weren't actually there.  Ah, artistic license!  Ultimately, I was able to fit in all the grandkids and their parents and grandparents.  It was a fun project, a challenge, and a painting that will always be dear to my heart.   

Happy holidays everyone!
