    Happy Holidays to you and yours and I will look forward to your sketches that always brighten my day! You should be happy to be where you are as it is pouring rain in Montreal and most of the snow will be melting over the next couple of days.

    Merci infiniment de vos bons vœux, recevez en retour les miens , les plus sincères.
    Un peu trop loin pour se rencontrer un jour mais recevoir tous les jours un e-mail de votre part est un véritable bonheur.
    Bien amicalement.

    Hi Shari. Love your spritely, colourful painting for Christmas Eve. Wishing you
    the very best holiday and a wonderful 2015 filled with many good surprises. As for me, I’m asking Santa to grant my wish to attend a workshop with you in Montreal next summer. Please Santa?


  10. Fabulous painting for Christmas Eve. Enjoy your stay in Costa Rica and I will certainly enjoy the sketches and paintings you share from there!

    Like many others I may not post much but every day I look forward to your paintings. It keeps me thinking about watercolor even when I don’t have time to practice. I, like Janice above, hope that Santa will grant my wish for another Seattle (or somewhere close) workshop with you.
    Happy Holidays!


    • It’s great to hear from you Cathy. I’ve been thinking about you because all week i’ve been using the palette you gave me this summer. Its perfect to carry to the beach because its so light. Happy holidays and hopefully I’ll make it out west again sometime soon.
