Thinking of Christmas

"Bringing Home the Tree," oil, 8"h x 6"w, copyright Jill Banks 2012
I know that we're two days from Thanksgiving ... but for many reasons, the next holiday is on my mind. Another, better photo will follow ... maybe tomorrow between cooking episodes in anticipation of turkey day.

The painting is of a figurine purchased by my mom for dad's 65th birthday during a trip to Venice that year. Now I'm off for a belated birthday dinner ... different year ... for my dad.
