Christmas Roses


Christmas Roses

Ah, to be home! Somehow no matter how tired I am, once I get home I seem to develop a second wind ... I painted these long into the night last evening ... simply enjoying the quiet time at my art table while the rain gently pattered on the skylights and the night deepened ...

I feel the effects of not enough sleep this morning, however! LOL Still, after feeding the cats this morning, I am looking forward to a quiet day with a few chores and the simple pleasures of time.
