The Little Miracle Pastel Painting

Hello all.  Of course I know it has been awhile, but I am still alive! I am trying so many different painting projects right now, and although I seem to be all over the place, I somehow make it work.  I have so many ideas in my head all the time. I wish that I could get all of these on paper NOW! But alas, I cannot. Unfortunately.

Anyhow, this is a painting I created awhile back, but I fixed it up with more color and softened it just a bit and put it on my Etsy Shop for Christmas.  I just love angels, and since Christmas is coming up fast, I thought this would be the perfect painting that could symbolize the miracle of Christmas.It seems as though this little angel is about to give this little baby an angelic kiss. A painting of pure love and devotion. I also think it could be used in a nursery as a guardian angel print.

I hope you like this one and hope to have more ideas up here soon.  Until next time!  Cheryl

A New Commissioned Portrait

This was a pastel portrait done for a friend of her grandson. It was a gift to her daughter and son-in-law as a Christmas gift. It was so enjoyable to do this awesome little boy, as he had the greatest impish smile! And as always, I learn so much from every portrait I paint.  This made Christmas even more special!  Meet Mason!DSC00529

The Bells Of New York City by Josh Groban

Here is a song I just heard from Josh Groban and I love it.  Since I heard it, I just keep singing this over and over in my head.

This cd that this came from was given to me last year as a gift for Christmas and I just never really played it.  I just brought it out to my car the other day as I went to pick up my daughter from school and instantly loved it, as I know you will. I think it could replace a few oldies that I’m tired of hearing at Christmas, like the two front teeth song…if you know what I mean.  This has a nice Christmas feel to it and it stays with you.  Enjoy!

Two Awesome, Christmas Screen Savers

I have something to show you! I just found these two screen savers and I have to tell you , they are so realistic!!!  First of all, I want to live at this place right now!  I can’t believe the quality of this screensaver.  It is Snow Village 3D and it almost reminded me of Polar Express the way the snow is falling and the scenery and all. Beautiful!

I  know this is only a screensaver, but can you picture this as a dvd you could play on your wide flat screen tv that just keeps playing??? I wouldn’t take my eyes off it!  And I  really think they should make this into an xbox game where you could just walk through the town and go into every store, ice skate  and maybe even interact with the people on the street.  You know,  just kind of taking in the scenery.  I’d play it!!!

Anyway, hope you like it!  I also attached the screen saver with Santa in his Sleigh flying over the town at night with his reindeer.  This also looks real.  Check it out!  They are both awesome!  I’m such a kid at Christmas! 🙂

Aspenglow By John Denver (Another Christmas favorite)

Here is another one of my favorite music pieces for Christmas.  We played this album to death in the 70’s.  I would sit on my couch and look out at the snow when I would play this song. So beautiful!  Now my kids love this song, too.  They should, they heard it enough!

I loved John Denver and felt so bad about his passing.  What a great  musical artist he was.  He seemed as if he could paint a picture with words.
