Christmas Card

Our Christmas Card this year...
Christmas Drawing


Merry Christmas!

I painted this when I was 6 years old... with a little help from my talented grandma. Back then I wanted to be an artist; I wanted to draw and paint; I wanted to be like my grandma. That path never worked out for me, I think either you got it, or you don't. And... I don't. But I've found other things I'm decent at and that I love ... those things I will do.

Oh, I love this so much. How adorable that you still have this and how adorable that your grandma helped you.

Dear Amanda. To me it's an artwork. It's beautiful and it has feeling. and that's what "art" means.

I think it would be an amazing idea to make a real postcard from this.

Merry Christmas!

Your aesthetic may be much more sophisticated, but it's still this warm and down to earth-- now we know where it came from.

So glad your Christmas was merry and here's hoping your new year is stellar. I so enjoy your blog. It always lifts my spirits.
