Small Joys

oil 6x6 inches not for sale. I was able to squeeze in one more painting before 2014 arrives. A vintage choir boy candle with tiny pomegranates, pine cone and a sprig cut from our Christmas tree. The candle and his companions are my most favorite decorations. Growing up, they were on our mantle every year sitting in a most wonderful spun angel hair. I don't think they make that angel hair any more. Mom is 93 and enjoys seeing them on our mantle now. A friend, Mary Jo, surprised me with these teeny little pomegranates. We were talking about gifts and she said, "The best gifts are the ones you don't expect." So true. Happy New Year everyone! May the year ahead be full of unexpected blessings!


  1. Love this painting and the sentiment behind it. I hope your 2014 is wonderful! I appreciate your friendship and support.

  2. I think you painted something very similar last Christmas... maybe it was a pine cone and a holly leaf or berries... right? I loved the simplicity and lovely image then, and I love it again this time.

  3. I don't know why I hadn't discovered your blog earlier. I love your work - very warm, luscious, and beautiful. Looking forward to visiting often in 2014. Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

  4. Love your still life arrangements, always. I see the thicker paint here too. Just lovely. Happy New Year to you too!! Can't wait to see what you paint in 2014.
