Goodbye 2014.... Hello 2015 !

One of the wondrous unexpected surprises this past Christmas was watching the space station orbit right over our house on a clear Christmas night.  As it turns of the astronauts orbiting as we watched grew up right across the lake from us here in Tennessee.  So as he was taking a space shot of Nashville from the station...we were looking up at him. Thanks to Will for making sure that we were out there at the right time....we didn't miss it.  What an awe inspiring Christmas gift from space. 
Here is the shot that astronaut Butch Wilmore took from the ISS on Dec. 25....... 

Wishing everyone a fresh new year ahead full of all sorts of experiences......Wishing you all kinds of unexpected happiness, big and small in 2015.

Merry Christmas to all.....

It's December 2014 and all the celebrating has begun!  Midtown Gallery had their holiday open house a few weeks ago and the gallery owner, Gary, asked his artists to bring him some very small sized that might be of interest to his customers.  I had so much fun making some miniature paintings that were seasonal in theme.  It reminded me of sitting at my Mom and Dad's dining table and working on all sorts of Christmas inspired art when I was a kid.  Thanks Gary....glad you sure got me into the spirit of things. These are all 3x4 or 4x4 in size...framed in 2 inch black frames....Some are still at Midtown if you're looking for original art oils as a gift idea. 


Here's wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year!
