Memories from Christmas Past

These are a few of my family treasures. Old Christmas ornaments that my mother in law used to decorate her tree. My grandchildren hung these with great care.
Journaling is bringing such enjoyment and is just what is needed after my family returned to Virginia yesterday.

Happy Painting all.

    These are really lovely. That little girl looks so real, I love the depicted face. And the fruit is well done also. All great my friend, but my favourites are the two bottom ones. All the best Joan.

  3. Hi there Joan!.... Good to see you... "Journaling With Paint! HA HA!!

    These are wonderfully drawn... coloured and annotated along the margins of the pages!Two voices speaking there

    How strange... but true! These journal entries will some day be treasured and read at Christmas times well into the future... and beyond! Another good reason for doing them Joan!

    Lovely work!

    Good Painting and Happy Holidays!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  4. Hi Joanie,

    I am catching up on blogging. These sketches are wonderful, and all the more so because they are of family treasures. I love the little choir boy and the ornaments. What fun and great ideas to sketch.
