Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season

No matter what you believe in or how you celebrate, it is the end of another year and some of us are enjoying beautiful snowy landscapes and time with family and friends... I hope it is a peaceful time for you all and you are able to rest and relax and create - whether those creations are cookies or paintings or beautiful photos - wishing you all the very best now and throughout the new year ~

Here are some of my latest works - I hope to have a bit of time between cooking and baking to work on them ... enjoy
This one is quite large and I am building it up in layers of transparent colours and gel mediums in acrylic - lots of iridescent colours in this painting and am loving the way it is turning out

This HAPPY Rooster and his family are enjoying some together time for the holidays ... a colourful whimsical piece in acrylics

And this final one is not painting related - but it is still an art form... I am a knitter and finished this fine lace shawl with Malabrigo lace yarn and beading all through it - it is the Haruni shawl pattern and I am looking forward to making more of these heirloom pieces - this is probably the prettiest shawl I have ever made and I am very pleased with it 

Happy Holidays to all of you and thank you for following my blog - I will continue to create and enjoy your support and company here ;)) Claire
