Christmas Time :: Le temps des fêtes

“My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?”
Bob Hope

Thankfully that artistic licence exists as this tree was never as tall as I painted it… but it just seemed that I had to. And no one in their right mind would actually go and put a star at the top of this very high fir tree? Would they? I just want to wish my family, blogger friends, friends and everyone that I have met, and those that I will encounter one of these days a wonderful Christmas time and a restful holiday period.

Heureusement que la licence artistique existe car j’ai peint ce conifère beaucoup plus haut qu’il ne l’est en réalité. Pensez-vous vraiment que quelqu’un monterait si haut pour mettre une étoile? Juste pour souhaiter à ma famille, mes amis bloggeurs, amis et tout le monde que j’ai rencontré, autant que ceux que je vais rencontrer sur mon futur chemin, un très beau Noel et un temps paisible pendant ce temps des fêtes.
