A Tail Of Two Christmas Projects

One day last summer I saw Stella way out in the back forty, checking on one of her calves. It was such a classic picture I could almost even hear her saying "Well, hello there cutie." (What she always says to each new animal she meets :-). I had hoped to paint this for her birthday, but you know how my year went... Sigh.



My first attempt at cows (I'm sure not quitting my day job). The old house in the background is the first house they lived in many years ago. Part is log. It's not in great shape anymore, but I still like seeing it way back there.



This is a floor cloth painted as a surprise for another friend. Ellitt is a cousin to Miss Tilly. Callie is a saint for putting up with him. Those darn corgis - there's a reason they are so cute ;-).

I had hopes for more finished Christmas projects - lots of empty stockings this year :-(.

Wait! Aren't there 12 days of Christmas?

Isn't that the truth about corgis! I recently saw a shirt that had a corgi on it and it said "Short and sweet...ok, maybe just short" so true :) Your Christmas projects are beautiful!

You did a grand job on the two projects you did finish. What a treat for Stella and your other friend.


This year you have known the best of times and the worst of times. Best wishes for a happy New Year to you, Saint Tim, and your farm family!

I really like your painting. You have a unique style that's very appealing.

Maybe you didn't get all you wanted done, but what you did get done is wonderful!! They will be treasured I'm sure.

To answer your question about the remake of True Grit...I hadn't heard about it so of course had to Google it. One thing's for sure IMHO...they'll never out do the original! The actors for the characters will make it interesting and we'll watch it.

Happy New Year with many blessings to you and yours!
