Oil, Three Thirsty Deer, © St Germain
Made this painting as a preparation for the usual summer
art show in Laguna, California. To make it genuinely
my experience, I chose
three deer that had actually been on our property.
It was a view of one of David’s songs “As a deer pants
for the water, so my soul longs for You …”
When I brought it, the organizer made a surprized
sound, for I usually do not paint animals.
She looked around, then
planted it on a low easel, plum in the middle of the room,
saying “I just needed it there!”
This tree had a heavy loss with such a large branch missing.
This is why it took a while before we cleaning it up our last
winter in California.
One Word Sun, Sun. Best, Wordless Wed.
Found this link Festive Bonbon via Prior House blog, and thought it would be fun to participate.
Tree: live, and since it’s on a small table, it reaches the ceiling
Christmas Carols: Immanuel, Hark, hear the Bells
Books: The Red Shoes
Movie: Forgot the title, but it’s about looking for a wife for the young Santa
Fruitcake: I can do without:)
Chocolate, nuts, fruit: Yes, in that order
Traditions: Painting from the Christmas story each year,
if not on Christmas day, then before January
On the table: it depends on adult child’s or friends Family
Memories: my family is 26 hrs. away or a plane trip across the ocean –
thankful for friends
Christmas Wish: that the expectancy of this time (without all the frills) would stay!

Der Natur Donnerstag
When Hubs was in the hospital a few years ago,
I discovered that driving those hairpin corners
while descending and ascending in the mountains
for an hour between Pioneer and San Andreas
were not too scary after all.
Took this shot when I was NOT driving, lol.
Travel Tue, Der Natur Donnerstag

A sunset in my window:)
Added this sky since my blog had difficulty with the previous linky.
Don’t apologize Sky Watch host, all is good:)
This is what I love about the mountains.
The sunsets are in winter just as fiery as in summer!
