2012 Holiday Series #24 ~ the last one!

2012 Holiday Series #24
5"x 5" Original Miniature Watercolor


This is my last Holiday painting for the year!
Actually, my last painting for 2012.
Thank you to Nancy Bradley, photographer
extraordinaire who took the photo from
Rock Ford Plantation in Lancaster County,
during our last snow storm.  What I believe is
bittersweet on a window with a view of a snowy
outside.  It made a great segue painting from
holiday to winter!

We ran a few errands today,went to the grocery
store which was packed.  I went to sit with my
Mom and she watched me paint.  Meanwhile
Linda was making my second birthday cake.
The first was a requested fabulous carrot cake
which we shared
at a party of special friends. 
She offered to make whatever else I wanted

for the big day.  I picked something new called
Coffee-Toffee Crunch Torte which now rests
in the freezer.  I licked the spoon... and can't
wait till tomorrow!  The torte is a small concession
to having to eat pork and sauerkraut on my
birthday.  Not a favorite.  Everyone else gets to
pick a "special" meal but since my day is New Years
I end up with kraut... 
As for tonight, we plan to hang out and watch
2 CD's of Boardwalk Empire and sip wine with
raspberry sorbet to ring in the new year.
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
