Christmas ornaments

We used to have a beautiful Christmas tree every year when our child was little. Since she is now grown up and has her own place, we no longer set up a tree any more. Partially because we have three cats…very active cats and setting up a tree is a kind of not safe. But I  still love to see those beautiful ornaments here and there in our home. I took them out from the boxes and place wherever I think they look good. Even painting them is fun. I have three more ornaments painting started on my desk. I love this season of the year.

On the way to school, I turned on the radio…Christmas music! Isn’t it too early…I thought. Then I realized that I have been painting the Christmas images for at least a few weeks. I laughed at myself. But Christmas is colorful and fun. I guess that everybody like to enjoy much longer than it’s season.

The Christmas ornaments are colorful and fun to see any time of the year. If you look at them carefully, you will find most of them have cute expressions.

We have had so much natural disasters this year all over the world. Today we are off from work because of Michael. We woke up middle of the night and checked out the strong wind and rain. It was not bad here but found out that Florida got horrible hit. We are praying the safety and peace for everybody. I wanted to think about something happier and merry so that I took out the Christmas ornaments and painted them. Winter is not bad!

Spring in the South is a dream-like period. The wind is warm. All kinds of birds sing everywhere. The flower pedals cover the passage way and drift in the air. Shangri-La might exists in near Tibet, but sometimes you can find it in South Carolina.

Waiting for Autumn to come

I love to go out and take a few pictures of landscape. Like George Inness, capturing the magical moment just before the nightfall would be wonderful.  But it is still too hot out there.

Fall semester

My summer vacation is over. Monday will be the fist day of school. It will be a bit hard for me to adjust my day but it will be fun. I am still working on the large landscape painting….but not quite finished yet. I am slow.
