"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...
Just like the ones I used to know ....
Where treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear
Sleighbells in the snow......."

Yes, my dream as well for that soft blanket of white that hushes the world and carpets it with a momentary innocence and a feeling of hope....

That white that casts an incredible shimmer of light when darkness falls

That white that seems to amplify the magic of the season.

Denis Collette recently posted a photograph that inspired this painting ( and it fed the dream of white Cristmases that I hold dear. Thank YOU, Denis, not only for permission to use your photo, but more for the inspiration that continues to feed this holiday season and the white Christmases I love. Blessings, my friend!

I wish each of you a most joyous, memorable, peace-filled holiday season. And may you be surrounded by love, family and friends, and all good things....

Buon Natale..........May the peace and joy of the season fill your homes and your hearts!

So soft and dreamy and lovely. We are having rain and supposedly sun on Christmas Day and Sunday. But I love to look at snow and snow scenes -- from inside.

The happiest of holidays to you and yours.
