Holiday Themed Drawings and Paintings
Carol’s Christmas Trike – colored pencil drawing
A toddler’s first tricycle is always a thrill for a youngster, but also a pleasant reminder of an elder’s first three-wheeler. The shiny pink finish suggested the color pencil medium, with the softer hint of Holiday green accent for the ribbon.
Christmas Amaryllis – pen and ink color drawing
A carefully observed and pen and ink drawing of this unusual seasonal flower, with color pencil highlights. The size and color of this bulb’s delightful blossoms signify for many the magic of the Holidays and a harbinger for Spring.
Gliding the Charles – watercolor landscape painting
After an enormous blanketing storm, this evocative winter vista of a cross-country skier perfectly captures another way the Charles River embankment provides connections to nature for the many residents of Boston, Cambridge and adjacent towns. Painted for the Charles River Conservancy.
Golden Bundles of Good Cheer – watercolor still life painting
This warm and glowing dining room vignettes holiday decorations, with a delightful festive flair for the Christmas Season. Gift packages of all sizes and shapes, wrapped with colorful paper and ribbons, are grouped in various nooks, crannies and tabletops around the house.
Holiday’s Persimmon & Pine – watercolor still life painting
A study of seasonal symbolic subjects – the plump orange persimmon fruit and a green fir bough – playing off each other in shape, color, texture, (plus aroma during painting and edibility afterwards for the fruit); all accented with the white and red of Christmas.
