Yes, I know it's August, and, no, I'm not putting up outdoor Christmas lights while the weather is nice, or even doing early gift shopping. It's that time of year when I start on my home-made Christmas cards. Those of you who have read my blog for a while may recall that each year I do a painting which I use for my cards. Usually the picture is based on a photo from one of my trips during the past year. For example, last year I painted a street scene from the French village of Giverny (with some snow added to make it look more "Christmassy".)
I then scan the painting to the computer and print off the cards.
This week I selected the picture for this year's card, and I have begun the painting. What is this year's subject? It's a secret until I send them out after Thanksgiving, so you will have to wait a few months to see.
