I Know It's Not Exactly Festive.....

...but I did enjoy painting this! It's the Granary Burial Ground in Boston, site of Paul Revere's tomb. I was fascinated by the tiny dark gravestones when we went there, especially against the bright autumnal leaves, and have been itching to paint it for weeks now. It's a simple watercolour, just using a couple of sable brushes.

Potato Number 99 awaits in the fridge....the penultimate spud! I wonder if I can get it done before Christmas....

I think one can have a little too much of Christmas...what a refreshing change! Are you really only two potatoes away from freedom? I think you deserve some kind of illustration-bravery award!

Lovely watercolour. There's nothing wrong with the subject in this season. Just makes us think of those that have gone on before us. :-)

Merry Christmas!
