Merry Christmas to All



















Flowers from Beverley

6x8in oil on canvas board   $125.


Wishing everyone a lovely, peaceful Christmas.
Christmas Eve is my favorite time of the whole holiday.
It is our tradition to enjoy a nice meal, open gifts and go to the
candlelight service after viewing the
luminaria display (candles in brown bags) in historic Mesilla.
New Mexico is a wonderful place to be during the holidays.
Here is a jovial song on our traditions. It takes a couple of
fun, and hopefully, interesting minutes. Click on to enjoy.
Christmas in New Mexico
Thank you Beverley for the lovely flowers.
A nice change from all the red and green I have been painting
Of course...that could be why you chose them!!!!!

Artist Note.

I am so appreciative of all the supportive comments.
I thank each and every one of you.
Please know my internet problems still exist.
Damage was done and
a new computer is on its way.
Will be back in a few days.

    1. Sorry that went off all on its own. Yes, and I am concerned that the video files are too large as I did it in real time. I wanted everyone who was interested to be able to see exactly how I work.
      We will see if it can be put together.
      What will be will be
