Before Thanksgiving, I took a break from, what I call, painting for idea - enjoying the independence on playing with my paints. Landscapes are a theme matter that I can experiment with color, work out my low assurance with greens and even play with different tools - all reasons why I love it.

Turns out these small paintings made for a high-quality purpose - you see, every holiday season in the past umpteen years, I've dressed up my front window at my frame shop with overgenerous displays filled with framed prints and poster, lots of flash lights and lots of props. But being on a budget this year, a great solution was to frame my own work and make a more calm and cozy display - a reminder of the easy things in life that surround us.
