Christmas Collection

Christmas has always been very magical for me.  From a very young age, my memories of the claymation classics such as "Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer," "Frosty the Snowman" and "Santa Claus is Coming to Town" mesmerized me.  The vibrant and whimsical frames captured my imagination as each scene clicked and flashed almost imperceptibly through each wintery wonderland scene.  How Do They Make This Artistry...  even at a young age, I understood on a basic level that there was a tremendous amount of human artistry working behind the scenes on these magical myths.  This was the beginning of my fascination and pondering of how "magic" could be created through artistry. 

My parents seriously raised the bar by decking out our home with numerous variations of Christmas trees.  The trees were oppulent in their themes, introducing to my imagination an eccentric, mischevious and mysterious world of joy.  

And that is all I need to say about that...  except to say that I am blessed beyond measure.  It is my wish that I can impart in my paintings some of the eccentric, oppulent and mysterious measure of joie de vivre' that I have experienced in my lifetime.
