This week I've been busy getting ready for the Holiday Faire at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School here in town. It is a really beautiful event. Friday night is adults only and then Saturday is for the entire family. They actually have chestnuts roasting on an open fire outside the school! The school is decorated very festive and cheerful, they have live music, an organic lunch, kids crafts and activities, along with wonderful holiday shopping from local vendors. Usually I'm just an attendee, but this year I thought I would be a vendor, hopefully I will have some time to do a little Christmas shopping.
Back in July when it was about 98 degrees, I was working on some Christmas paintings. Fischer was wondering why in the world I was working on Christmas paintings in the middle of summer. I told him that it made me feel cooler! Here is one of my favorite pieces that I did. It is similar to my painting called "Our Town", this one is titled "Winter in Our Town"
This piece makes me dream about a warm and cozy fire after a wonderful day of snowboarding or skiing or any kind of winter fun.
