Baubles and Ribbon
“Baubles and ribbon return, adding glitz to a festive holiday season.”
by Debbie Lamey-MacDonald
I know I am early, but Christmas always seems to creep up on me! I decided to paint a miniature painting that I might use for my Christmas cards etc. This one took much longer than I expected, but I do find that to be the case with my miniature work.
As I was digging through my seasonal ornaments it occurred to me how comforting it is to find old favorites and the memories they stimulate. I smiled as I thought how funny it is that they appear yearly and go forgotten for most of the year. After many months they are lovingly retrieved to add sparkle to our festive celebrations.
I continue to be mesmerized with anything shiny. My mother says I am just like a crow! I love anything reflective, so it is with great joy that I add these qualities to many of my paintings. The miniature paintings especially lend themselves well to reflective subject matter as I often paint them sitting on glass.
Wishing you much joy and fond memories as you rummage through your yearly decorations in preparation for your upcoming Christmas celebrations!
P.S. I have also included a recent miniature painting that I finished for autumn in case you missed it.
