Thank you!

It's nearly Christmas, a good time to reflect on my friendship with you! It means a lot to me that you stop by to look at what I am doing and that you sometimes leave a comment. It goes without saying that I am also appreciative to those who have purchased some of my paintings .....but I'll say it anyway!.... Thanks to the art appreciators....you make it so painters keep painting.

(I'm not usually a fan of sentimental subjects, but this time of year calls for a bear:)
