Happy Holidays…..A Gift for my Grandparents!

Below is a work I just completed yesterday. The title is MY GRANDPARENT’S KITCHEN TABLE.

So many holiday meals have been shared at this table, but I wanted the kitchen to appear as it does most of the year, without any decorations and my grandparents usual seats.

Its a paper collage that measures 12 by 12 inches.

And below is a beagle that I painted in the 7th grade for my grandparents present. I painted it in 1989. What a wonderful journey its been!

Try and keep creating even though its the holidays!
