Merry Christmas!

merry-merryw16-12-19-pentalic-xmas-treeOur tree is eclectic, having a
history of Jewish Buddhist Catholic
Vedic ornaments, and a serious
Santa Claus ornament collection.

This year we are opting for restive…
Family out of town, we are frankly
exhausted, and so, ordered in, a meal and
pie and ice cream and like Turkeyday,
we have a set of DVD’s to watch
and will SLEEP IN and NAP.
(Omi that is a present in itself.)
Call family.  I will paint, I am sure.

I tried an all ink tree,
and the first one I belabored, right,
but I learned so much that the
second one came out very very nice.

The brightness of the permanent yellow under the green of the tree brightened it up so much!  Also, like a calligrapher, you need to just do the linework and brushwork of the branches superfast, one shot, and then put the brush down.  It either works or not!
