I have long considered the creative impulse to be a visit-a thing of grace perhaps. Not commanded, owned, so much as awaited, prepared for. A thing, also, of mystery.

of bluebirds on green grass

a christmas bird

I always think of cardinals at Christmastime. 
We don't have snow yet.
I made my own.

frost and fog

I started this wintery scene with a frosty window.
The fence and snow were painted, 
Both the moose and moon were added from my own photos.
It is easy to paint brushes in the GIMP program.

santa claus

I got out a few Christmas decorations this week. 
My oldest Santa turned 25 years old this season.
He will spend the holidays on the kitchen counter, with
the poinsettias and amaryllis.
