Partridge in a Pear Tree!

This is a painting I did when I was 18ish. Maybe younger??? Anyway a long time ago!   (And no I am not going crazy and doing the 12 days of Christmas. Oh No! Not doing it. Too much pressure!)
I did one the other day real quick thinking I was going to use it for my Christmas ornament exchange. But I changed my mind. I did something else that I like much better.
I think I like the old one better. It is a little more simpler. (Is that a word??)


Anyway I hope you all have a wonderful week. I will see you either Sunday or Monday! Just learn how to enjoy yourself. It all goes by so quickly. Stop and feel it. Feel the spirit of Chirstmas. When you decorate, do it with music playing and good feelings. Even if you are doing it yourself. Enjoy it! Don't do it just because you have to. (If you don't feel like it you don't have to either.) Remember that the way you feel or how you let someone else make you feel is all up to you.  Choose to feel good!!!

I just love you guys out there!!! XXXX OOOOO

Love these. It is funny that your style hasn't changed much. I have the fish in the bathroom and that doodle thing that is in the hallway that were done in 2001. Now they are calling it Zendoodles. Kinda funny. You could have invented Zendoodles!

Love you too sweet Heather. This message ~ perfect. I love your paintings. The two are VERY similiar. Thinking the background colour of the youngster is more muted whereas in the second more dramatic - the white gainst the black. That's why it looks more simple(r).
Angels be with you sweetie.

Have a happy week. ~Theresa
