Are You Thinking of the Holidays?

Wow, I can't believe I took the dog on a walk today and trees are turning fall colors already! It's still summer. But barely. Autumn is just around the corner. Summer went by so fast!

But, even, though summer's not quite over yet, it's getting close to fall. I'm already thinking of the holidays. Of course, it doesn't help that the stores have had Halloween items for sale since August. But, like them, we artists have to thinking ahead about our artwork subjects sometimes.

I'm starting to think about paintings of Halloween themes, and Christmas snow. No, I'm not thinking of Thanksgiving much. I don't fancy the idea of painting a turkey. But such things as black kittens with pumpkins, or deer in the snow at night with the north star shining brightly, would be fun things to paint.

Now's the time to start painting those things if you want them to be available for purchase when the holiday frenzies start. So starting getting those holiday-themed creative juices flowing!

Are you considering the holidays in your art now? What sorts of things do you plan to paint that are related to the holidays?

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this
site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.

You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/
OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV
, that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
