As much as I hate to put Christmas paintings up this early I do have to paint them early enough to set up classes and give people time to plan to attend the Paint Parties.  So here are two “Holiday Cheer” paintings that we will be doing at the December 1st Paint Party at 2 pm. (Click here to register for it.) Painters will have their choice of shapes and colors.  And as a bonus, when we finish the paint party it will be time for the annual Christmas Parade and we can watch it from the porch of The Studio.  Sounds like fun, huh??!!

I get invited to paint at special events from time to time.  A good friend of mine is manager at Peebles here in town and invited me to paint there for a special promotion they were doing last spring.  They had me back this weekend.  I painted a larger version of a small painting (Virginia WIne I, see it here) that I did a few weeks ago and I enlisted a helper.  Often, when painting on location, I invite kids to “help” me.  And usually they jump right in.  This little girl was  so much fun.  She helped me paint for a while and then she did her grandmothers make-up at a table they had set-up for people to try out some new things.  Adorable.

Virginia Wine II, is acrylic on canvas, 18″x24″ and is almost finished.  I still have a little more to do to it but we got a great deal done at the event.

I did this painting that I call Virginia Wine for a special request this week.  It is an acrylic on 6″ x 8″ canvas.

As I painted it I tried to take photos because several of you have told me that you enjoy seeing how the paintings develop.  So here you are:
