Merry Christmas! Presenting my Painting “Candyland”

Merry Christmas and happy holidays! Happy Hannukah! I want to wish everyone a safe and happy new year’s celebration. Yes, we are going to do another New Year’s Eve virtual party during SyFy’s annual Twilight Zone marathon. (To get updates, watch this blog or join my Facebook group here; all you need to participate in the party is a Facebook account.) The above image is a watercolor painting I made this year called “Candyland.” In the background is the The Sky, which is the Northern Lights. The lights are blue, purple, and neon green. The foreground has large black trees that cast blue/grey shadows on the white snow. I have blogged about art multiple times. A few months ago, I did THIS video called Art & Mental Health Part 1.

Merry Christmas! My painting, “Candyland.”
