#DaysOfChristmasArt In 2009, I created "December's Window", which was somewhat of a departure from the portrait paintings I had been doing up until this point. I wanted to focus on the cold darkness of Winter and the portal of warmth and hope that the window represents. The pervasive presence and mythological roots of winter in our lives continue to inform our culture, even with the advent of modern conveniences.

This painting was also an excuse for me to indulge in the intricate and meditative process of Celtic knotwork and stained glass design. Cardinals are also a constant shock of color and a familiar avian friend here in Georgia where I live. Rain, shine, or snow, I can always spot them chirping away in the twilight.

This painting was created in ink and watercolor and the original has since been sold. Cards and prints for this painting, however, are currently up in my shop. Get them before they return back into the vault on Dec 31st!

I've been thinking about this topic a lot lately talking with artist friends.  We've known each other for years.  Many of us know each other from way back in our college days when we'd hang out in the Student Center with piles of books and art supplies and ...
