Holiday Handmade crafted ornaments

I just recently completed a set of ornaments.  I'm not sure where they will end up, but I'm thinking that Clarice may end up selling them at a holiday fundraiser for her school.

They have been very fun to make.

The color palette is Mondrain:  with yellow, blue, and red on a white background.
The gourds were painted and then sealed twice with an opalescent and then a glossy fixative.

Tied through the eye screws are leather bands (for jewelry) that should hold up well on any Christmas tree or other hanger for the holidays.

The Union Jack I proudly bear Emblazoned in my bulldog hair. A tribute to a fearsome man: Dear Winston, 'twas your sturdy plan That broke the chains of tyranny. How I desire to honor thee.

IF: Trail

A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.

IF: Skyline

This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
