It really upsets me when I see trash laying on the side of the road. There's so much beauty in the trees and leaves and whatever... why do people have to litter and ruin it. Something they don't realize or don't care about is it draws animals to the road where they are prey for whatever vehicle.. zooms by.Sorry.
As I get time I've worked on painting a few Christmas Cards. I'm tired of shopping and hope it's all done. I've got more cookies to bake,wrapping, cleaning and some general cooking to do. My Christmas mug is full of coffee in front of me, to renergize me. I need it. Too tired to even paint.
love to you all and Merry Christmas,Diana

ps. Did I tell you --Monelle came over last week and she had on a lovely full length faux fur coat with a lovely satin lining.. I draped it on the chair in the living room. I didn't hear anything in the living room as we were in the kitchen so I tiptoed in there. Sadie was laying on the satiny side of Monelles' Fur Coat under neath the Christmas tree getting ready to chew on it. Oh My Gosh. I rescued it in the nick of time!! ha ha.. Sadie is a mess!

|Checkerboard Emu, 8x10 at Red Queen Gallery in Onancock now.|
|ESAL Christmas Party, Gertraud, Ivana and Evangelina|
|Debra and Monelle and more ESAL|
I finished my silly emu watercolor, putting checkerboard in the background and a splatter of red . After the party I drove up to the Red Queen Gallery and left 6 new watercolors for the Second Friday opening this Friday. The Emu is one of the paintings there now.
Saturday is the Christmas Open House at Copper Creations Studio in Melfa which will be the last Art Show of the year for me.
Time is flying by and soon with be Christmas. I've got so much to do for it and really would just like to paint and sip coffee with Sadie by my side and the lights of the Christmas Tree on in the background. ah ..well.. maybe later today.
love to each of you! Diana

|Angry Chicken Foot,8x10,framed $99|
|Sadie-- and here is the tree.|
I got the Christmas Tree. Me, by myself, into the car it went and back home. I struggled it out of the car and Sadie leaped on it. It was all tied up. Which really blew my mind as usually I pick this one then that one then oh that one.. until I decide.. but I got it from a large store and it was only $18 and all were wrapped.. So I chose a fat bundle, I usually like fat and short trees,I tried it,and amazingly it looks good. ha ha.. Sadie and I put it up,we got it in the tree stand. I leaned it on a rocking chair. Then I got in the floor,put each leg on the side of the tree stand and put my head under the tree ,balancing the tree on my head as I screwed the knobs to hold the tree into the tree stand. Well.. of course Sadie had her head under there with me.. and I got laughing so Hard. After I got it all screwed into the stand,I laid back on the floor and started laughing again as I had a small piece of the tree in my hand, like I was holding a flower.. well you get the picture. Sadie was laying next to me eating a tree branch looking very puzzled.. So after I could stop laughing I got up, we got the lights on. I had to pull them from her as she was trying to eat them,too.. I'm not putting many ornaments on it.. I really don't want to have to take her to the vet over Christmas.. So It's up. Have you got yours?? Any thing silly happen as you were putting it up. ha ha..
Love to you,Diana
