My parents made their own Christmas Cards the majority of their 61 Christmases together. I guess that’s one reason I’ve had so much fun painting these 4 wintery scenes, with the intent of making cards to share with all of you.
Everyone loves Christmas, and for me it is a big celebration of my Savior’s birth! I’m carrying on the tradition of sharing that encouraging news or a heartfelt greeting in a Christmas Card.
I have always wanted to paint cardinals. Wish I could see one up close some day, but will have to travel to where they are! Their red feathers seem to announce Christmas to everyone!
The snow covered tree is the one that grew at my parents’ home in Montana. For the painting, I trimmed it with living ornaments.
Lamp posts with candles seem so welcoming, and to me represent the warmth of gathering with friends and family. While creating this painting, I recalled the two lanterns at the gate of our former home. Gary converted some old light fixtures to gas and hopefully the flames flickered a warm “Welcome.”
My grandchildren suggested the snowman to complete the set. He makes me smile, as he silently shouts “Joy to the World.”
Many of you have inquired about Christmas Cards this year, so it’s with great pleasure that I’m able to share these cards with you.
Each card is available as a blank note card with no text on the front as well. All card insides may be personalized if desired.
One of my parents' cards just for fun...
