Ribbons and Bows


I have finally finished the painting and will be printing it onto cards very soon. All of my cards have blank inserts ready for you to write the greeting of your choice and some information about the inspiration behind the painting on the back. For this painting I have written...

When you have a very young child in the family, the temptation to shower them with gifts at Christmas is enormous but when Christmas arrives you discover that what interests them most is the colourful wrapping paper and bows. This young child is fascinated by a discarded Christmas bag full of bows and ribbons. Unconcerned about anything other than this moment in time he is full of curiosity and wonder.

"yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That is why it's called the present" (Bil Keane).

Whether you have children or not pause a while this Christmas and savor each small colorful moment in time.

Thank you for following along with me as I painted this.
