A lot of "me" is on this canvas. I love this painting because each part of it represents a special tradition of my family, and I have enjoyed having it on my own wall for a long time. (Look at the date when it was painted!!) 

This one makes me so happy, and I'm also just a little bit sad. You see, it sold today.  It goes in the mail to its forever home tomorrow. That does make me really happy.  I hope the new owners treasure it.

Something else makes this sale special. This sale made my 200th Etsy sale!
I am grateful and honored and humbled and not just a little in disbelief that my work hangs on the walls of people across the country.

Merry Christmas!


  1. Oh boy it is congratulations. What a milestone. Think how you have changed people's lives and what a legacy you will leave and so many stories. I love the chimney too, especially after Gatlinburg - what hope that you can rebuild and I sure hope the folks there do as it is a unique place.

    Merry Christmas!!

    1. Thank you.
      We have a favorite place near Gatlinburg called Berry Springs Lodge. They were fortunate that their place was spared.
