Some Christmas Journal Pages and EDM Challenge #203

It is hard finding time to do a daily sketch over the Christmas Holidays - Unless the journal pages are fast and simple.

Here are beautiful Christmas trees that are put up for a month along the Avenue.


My new favorite Christmas candy -


Another Toy Soldier from Rockefeller Center.  I painted one last year and now should make this a tradition when I go down to see the fabulous tree.


The facade of the newly renovated Guggenheim is now visible again.  We took our oldest grandson for lunch and then a visit last weekend.


Finally did last week's EDM Challenge.  In our apartment, the children drink their apple joice from juice boxes or sippy cups.





A delightful collection of holiday sketches...Wishing you the best of everything in 2009! :)

I so love New York through your eyes! Best wishes for a wondeful new year!

Shirley! Lovely trees and The GUGGENHEIM! I remember way back in high school having to do a final year 'Thematic Study' for art and I chose 'The Curve in Architecture'...(well you would, wouldn't you... cough...) and pictures of the Guggenheim fascinated me then, and still do! Lovely holiday sketches, as usual!

I like these quick sketches, you really captured the flavor of the season. The toy soldier is especially cute! Happy new year to you and your family.

I have a Christmas card that I was sent several years ago that has similar Christmas trees. Way back then I hoped to paint them one day! Love the Guggenheim sketch!

Shirley -- I just love your journal pages and the memories they all hold! I wish you the very best 2009 and blessing to you and yours!!! Thank you for your constant support and encouragement -- and most of all, your friendship!! May we can finally meet next year!!! Sure hope so!

What an interesting post of delightful different sketchsubjects. So like your soft spontaneous style. You are so lucky to be able to wonder into the Guggenheim. I am 3 hours from the great galleries of London but have a few of interest in Norwich. Every good wish for the New Year.

great sketches!!!
happy new year 2009
all the best:)
