NEW WORK: Wreath, watercolor, 20 x 20”.
Every year I create an original painting for our personal holiday cards. Wreath celebrates the joyousness of the holiday season. The brightly-colored bows represent the gifts we give to, and receive from, friends and loved ones, and also the gifts of the spirit we share with those closest to our hearts.

Lou and I are very excited to be participating in this new event.
From hand-smithed metal and leather jewelry to handmade organic jams, and from watercolors to wines, the Indiana Artisan Holiday Marketplace will feature work by nearly 80 art and food artisans, many of them recognized as the best in Indiana. This first-ever event partners with downtown Fort Wayne's HolidayFest, featuring the Holly Trolley, taking guests to arts-related pop-up shops all over downtown. It's a holiday gift-buying opportunity focused on the best art and foods coming from Indiana today. The Embassy Theatre's Festival of Trees is just across the street, and your Festival ticket, or stub, will save you $2 at the Marketplace ticket desk. Sample wines, syrups, candies, chocolates, homestyle noodles, and more as you browse the "mini galleries" of nearly 100 of Indiana's highest-quality potters, painters, woodworkers, jewelry makers, and more.
