This project was a stretch for me. As I allowed myself to be one with the process, I quite enjoyed it. Personally, I struggle with creating holiday themed art but I really wanted to push through that barrier and see it to the end. The holidays can be difficult for a number of reasons. Though I am surrounded with so much to be grateful for, there is a melancholy that also comes over me. I am so pleased that I persevered through this canvas! I gained peace and a sense of a particular closure as I did this. I loved the result. It was fairly time consuming as I painted the flowers and leaves. There were many challenges which I found myself sitting with and breathing through. I hope you enjoy the watching as much as I enjoyed the making. For me, Christmas must be about the joy, the peace and the love that it is marked by, so the focus of this canvas being “Peace” was very meaningful.
