PPF - Nightfall

>> Friday, December 07, 2012

'Nightfall' Acrylic on 12x12 stretched canvas
I painted this the other day and it is finally one that I absolutely love! After seeing so many holiday related paintings last week it put me in the mood to do a winter scene. Our weather has been unseasonably warm and I figured if I can't have real snow, I'd make my own!  My family is all fighting over who is getting it for Christmas but I'm going to have to keep this one for myself.  Again, sorry for the bad pics, but I have found a fairly reasonably priced new battery for my digital camera but it may have to wait until after Christmas. Linking up with Paint Party Friday, click here to see all of the other wonderful works of art.  Happy Friday!

Oh my gosh!! We DO have the same tree! My hubby & I were there standing in line at Home Depot. :)
Your painting is so beautiful. And for this tree lover - those trees are making me swoon. So, so pretty!
