Tell me it's not already December :). Oh, wait, I have a few holiday things to share so I guess that's a good thing.
The Singing Tree
5 x 7
pastel (sold)
I found this tree while skipping through the forest and was so surprised when I saw how bright it was! After considerable thought, and careful investigation, I surmised those glowballs are fireflies all bunched up together so they can stay warm in the winter snow. I find it enchanting how they light up the snow and pine needles around them. It is possible I may have heard them singing Christmas carols; I know I found myself humming a few while I was painting...
