Hitch up the sleigh. It’s time to ride! If you live in an area of frequent snows, perhaps you’ve had opportunity to enjoy a ride in a horse drawn sleigh. This is one of my early attempts at painting. It is called Sleigh Ride. My intent was to provide a scene of old time winter enjoyment. So, I invite you to bundle up, close your eyes, and imagine yourself in a vintage horse drawn sled. Hope you enjoy the ride.

 We are now days away from the end of the calendar year of 2018. Merry Christmas to those that celebrate Christmas. For everyone, regardless of what holidays you do or don’t celebrate, I hope you had a good 2018 and can accept my wishes for each of you to have an even better 2019.
