climbing Mt.Everest... with a paintbrush.

Hi friends!  I know many of us in this area are longing for a white Christmas... so here's a painting of some snowy peaks I recently did.
This festive season has seen a number of my paintings being sold lately - so that gets me in a merry mood for sure!

A lovely lass commissioned me to do a painting of Mt.Everest for her husband for Christmas, and I was happy to take on the challenge.   The significance: they hiked to the base camp for their honeymoon!  Gosh, my man and I just hiked Cabot Trail out east and I was ready to pack it in for some lounging and chocolate.

I was happy with the end result, and love my drippy drips at the bottom...  thankfully she loved it too which is always key in a commission.  

So there's some wintry goodness for those of us longing to see more white around these parts.
Catch you on the flip side, slide.show.sunday will be tomorrow!
