                                            "Christmas"
 
                   The setting for this painting was somewhere in Pennsylvania, I'm not sure of
                      the exact location as I was traveling through there on the way to Chadds
                      Ford,  Pennslyvania to see an Andrew Wyeth exibition at the Chadds Ford
                      Museum.  Wyeth was and still is my favorite artist of all times.  I remember this
                      farm was at a bread and breakfast we stayed........typical of the rock barns you
                     see in that part of the country.  Probably only one of the few paintings that
                     I really don't know the exact location.   I took the photos, and it was actually
                      a couple of years later before I painted it in tempra....one of my first tempras.
                      At the time of the Wyeth show,  I had never painted in egg tempra,  having
                     only worked in watercolor.  I came back fired up after seeing Wyeth's tempras
                     and wanted to try it out.   This painting is probably one of the first few
                    paintings I did in tempra........for sure, the first snow scene in tempra.   This painting
                    was done in the early 1990's.
