Hoo boy was
it cold in Choteau, Montana this Christmas. Many times the mercury dipped below -5 degrees Farenheit, -15 Celsius. Painting was especially cold, as you are pretty much just standing around in the snow for a couple of hours.

Happy Holidays!

Hot Tub Santa, acrylic on bristol paper, 5" X 7"

I'm in balmy Choteau Montana for Christmas this year, where if I was smart, I'd warm my bones in a hot tub, just like Santa here. Instead, I hope to get a few paintings done in between family events.

Here's a hearty thank you to all the people who have make my life awfully terrific this year.
