In between opening presents, nice visiting and some great meals, I did get into the studio for awhile ... that time a Christmas gift for myself.
While son Sam and daughter-in-law Michelle napped (a Christmas tradition in Michelle's family) and husband Randy cleaned up the mess from gift opening, I spent a few hours on "Bunny Business." Tomorrow will be time to return to readying paintings for my upcoming solo exhibit: "Warm Observations: People and Places." No matter how much I stretch the theme, a still life with a rabbit just shouldn't be in the line-up.
I'm thankful for this day. Missed being with our daughter who is sick with the flu. Loved sharing it with Sam, Michelle, Randy and my Mom and Dad.
