New England Christmas

New England Christmas
Oil on Linen Board

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas in Dallas, Texas. Last year we had 14 inches of snow in Flower Mound, a record for the area. I would be happy with just 6 inches if it sticks long enough to give us that beautiful blanket of white that makes the holiday magic. Wherever you are this winter, may your hot chocolate stay warm and your toes stay snuggley.

Oh Nancy, I love your New England Christmas. I feel the same way about snow. Here on Long Island we are lucky if we get an inch before Christmas. Your painting is beautiful.

A very beautiful Christmas painting, Nancy. I am glad the puggie community had a "taste" of snowflakes, it doesn't happen often. Temperatures are rising here making Christmas Day in South Africa traditionally one of the hottest days of the year!

Oh so beautiful, Nancy! I love this piece so very much. Such a magical and homey feel to it. I really just want Howard right now. Yep...I love him!

Joan I always thought you guys would have snow for months! Someday I hope to come out to the Island and see you lady. : )

Thank you Marie. Happy holidays to warm, balmy South Africa! If you are ever visiting your family in Katy you must let me know...

Autumn Howard LOVES the ladies. I'm sure he would be most eager to add you to his list of admirers and fans. xxoxoxo

We love your painting so much,
It makes the heart feel so good to look at it.
And we love little Howies sweet kissable face.
I like to catch snowflakes too and count reindeer
