In addition to these lovely family gifts I was also given a beautiful original watercolour from a very good friend. Each year, a group of artists who belong to 'Art Colony' which was formed by Jane Freeman draw names and we send a piece of art to one other member as part of our Secret Santa exhange. This year, my Secret Santa painting was from Christiane Fortin a fellow Canadian. I just had to share this painting from her with you all. Isn't it beautiful.
You can see that our younger dog Ella approves too. Thank you Christiane. I will treasure it always.
Just as an update...In moments between Christmas celebrations I have had a couple of opportunities to work on my Ted painting. Hopefully I have it finished soon for you to see.
