Working on some Christmas card ideas

It's that time of year again, time to paint my Christmas cards. I love doing it and I love watching my students paint their own cards. I am just playing with some ideas and photos I found, doing some small paintings to see if I like them enough for my cards. While i was in Vegas this week i saw the most amazing candied apples and the strong lighting in the hotel made them so shiny, they almost look glass! I think with some fun lettering and maybe some bows and tags added they would make a nice card. For me, the hardest part is deciding what I want on my Christmas cards every year!

Are you painting your cards this year?

I think I am going to do some birds next!

I am not happy with the puppies, they're off and I won't paint them again since its not what I want for my cards.

The candied apples look wonderful. I like that idea for a card and no I don't paint cards. Maybe I should..?

I love the apples. Both are excellent but I agree, the dogs aren't a Christmas card. I usually only do one painting for the holidays and have cards printed. I'm not disciplined enough to start early and get a bunch done though every year I say I'm going to.
