Christmastime at the Little Yellow House

I actually painted this a couple of years ago on New Year's Eve but I came across it in my studio and decide to hang it back up inside my house, and re-post to my blog. Wishing you warmth and serenity this Christmas and New Year.

Guardian Spirit 10"x10"

The theme for December's Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge is "Spirit." This, of course could be interpreted in a number of ways. I chose to use for my model an angel lawn ornament that I bought from the clearance rack at Lowe's at the end of the summer. Not that the event was so spiritual mind you, however, it's just that I like angels, and I thought she was pretty cool looking. She's guarding my studio now though, not my garden so much...maybe I'll find another. (And geez...I do need to rephotograph her...the complexities in the background to the upper right are not quite so dark...I am using borrowed cameras at the moment to shoot my paintings and photographing them late at night after work and painting...I am going to try to reshoot a couple this weekend).
