Merry Christmas to you!
I hope this letter finds you well and in the holiday spirit!
My heart couldn’t be more full right now! Between getting everything ready for another Christmas this year with my love, Monte, and traveling back home to Oklahoma to see my family this week for an early celebration. I can’t wait to see my little nieces and nephews opening their Christmas presents this week and shrieking with delight! Isn’t that the best?
Seeing that childlike joy fills my heart to the brim. It reminds me of Christmases past being so excited for Santa, cookies, decorating the tree, making snow angels, stockings, and lots of laughs. Although I grew up too fast, I always felt that super special childhood joy at Christmas.
I’ve always loved giving and receiving gifts. As a kid, I loved making gifts by hand. My favorite was painting ornaments and Christmas ceramics that my mom would fire in the kiln.
Not much has changed. I still love painting something by hand to give to others. Now it’s in the form of oil paintings. This week my heart is so full because of all of you who purchased a painting in my holiday sale last weekend! So many paintings went to loving homes! I hope you feel that joy and delight when you open up your painting.
There’s no greater feeling as an artist than having someone like you appreciate my work so much. So THANK YOU all so much.
I wish I could give everyone a painting for free just like I did when I was a kid. Wouldn’t that be great! I’m just so happy that my holiday sales make it possible for many of you to get a new original painting of museum quality at an affordable price. Here are some of the paintings that you all treated yourselves to this last weekend!
I can’t wait for you to get your new paintings!
I know they’re going to uplift your home and your spirit! And they’re going to make your home as unique and special as you are.
