Every Christmas Eve I get together with my extended family for dinner. One of my traditions is to give each family a small aceo size pastel painting. Last year I painted snowmen and winter trees for everyone. This year I don't really have a theme, just some of my favorite landscape motifs. I put this year's paintings in a collage for the blog. Each one is 2.5 x 3.5. I always enjoy painting these little ones. It is is a great exercise for interpreting my reference photos without using up a lot of pastel and paper. There are some here that I would enjoy painting larger.
