Painting Christmas




I was painting Christmas, and listening to Christmas music by Michael Buble.







I wanted to paint a little Christmas tree sitting underneath a glass globe.

I started by painting a miniature watercolor painting of a Christmas tree.  I added a bit of glitter.  Then I went to the computer and added lots of digital magic.

Suddenly, Christmas came to life on these fabric designs.  I call the fabric collection, I'll Be Home For Christmas.








I try to sit down and paint for a while, but my imagination really flies when I take that painting and go into the land of digital magic.


Before I know it, I have created prints, products and of course a bunch of fabric designs for the collection.





The icing on the cake is seeing products appear wearing something I just created.


It's a bit like baking.

Dearest Karen, it is comforting to come here, to see a dear blogger friend whose love for art, nature and GOD has not changed but yet, always evolving with the seasons. You are a comfort. ENJOY!
