I Do Not Understand What I Am Looking At!

The Stare
6 x 6
Acrylic on Panel

This little girl had such a great expression as we drove around looking at all the beautiful Christmas decorations the other night.
 I just had to paint her, especially those eyes!
 I want to believe she was thinking, "What happened to these yards and houses? 
What is going on with all these colors, lights, strange looking frozen/plastic people sitting in the yard, big dogs with sticks on their heads, even a baby sleeping in a pile of  grass! 
 Oh my, what is going on! Something Exciting!
 My neighbors are even being nice to me!"

How do you explain Christmas to a little girl like her?
I can say it is a very special day, a birthday celebration for someone.
Maybe I will explain more in another post...

I have been away from this blog and have missed visiting but when Christmas is over I will share some of the paintings I have been commissioned to create for Christmas presents. I don't dare share now, Joey, the Original "Daily Dog", can't keep a secret!

This is an exciting time of year as we busy ourselves with extra activities.
I have been finishing up several large projects and planning for the new year. 
I hope all of you are able to take a moment and reflect on what this time of year means to you.
 For me, I am celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.
 It is an event that has such profound meaning that I do not have room here to explain. 
If any of you want to know more about why I love this particular birthday celebration, please email me and we can visit about it.

I want to thank you for visiting! 
I hope to be posting again soon.
