Hi all! This is going to be our family christmas card that my wife agreed to let me paint this year instead of buying one! She loves to shop! Hope everyone has a great holiday season and hoping that next year brings good times to all. Thanks for looking! - Oh - this is a 16x18 on Masonite which I've cropped for the card.

As I live in the desert of Phoenix, Az I can say your painting is wonderful. Lucky friends and family that receive your card!
Yes - we do get snow in the desert for all those wondering :)

How lovely! I like your perspective over the horse's backs. I concur with Joann that I would love to receive this as a holiday card.

Very nice - I think you should tell your wife to plan on saving her money on "Store Bought Cards" from here on out! This is beautiful!!

Very nice indeed, Rich. We don't have snow here at Christmas where I love. Instead we experience the heat of summer!

Well done.

Wonderful! I use to have a brother that sent hand designed Christmas cards every year. We all looked forward to the treat of seeing what he had come up with. this could be a tradition for you, and a great treat to all who receive them!
