"Along Red Mountain Pass" - oil on canvas
© Bruce A. Morrison
I have been buried, literally, in work this month - as I'm sure many of you are experiencing as well!  But being extremely busy can be a positive thing - at least that's the way I'm going to take it!
Today is the winter solstice!  And here we are...brown, only a smidge of snow left here and there in the shadows!  I had a client come over the other evening to pick up a framed piece; they said, "Brown Christmas - White Easter."  I can live with that.  However it does seem out of character for a brown Christmas here...I only remember one brown Christmas in NW Iowa in 61 years...its just not normal!
The image at the top of the post does not have anything to with with the tallgrass prairie of course - I had used the painting above in a blog last winter sometime...Its was used this Christmas on my cards sent out to family, friends and clients, so I'll use it here as a "wish" for you.
I would like to wish you the very best this Christmas - and the best possible new year in 2012.  God Bless and thank you for stopping by on the prairie every now and again...I hope to keep it up!
See you on the tallgrass next year!
