Our Christmas cards have arrived...in the studio, ready to be addressed
The same card every year...William Arthur ordered through
Dulles Designs in Charleston, SC
An annual census of our family. As it has grown...and sadly this year, contracted with the loss of Scarlett. Our first card without her furry face.
For the photo this year, I had a vision in mind.
To re-create this photo, taken last year on Christmas day and posted here
So we headed to the farm....with a wreath, red bow and red jeans in hand. Sadly, the weather did not cooperate...as well as, one member of the family. Determined not look at the camera...and to be photographed with binoculars.
While we managed to take one photo with all members of the family looking in the same direction (and Mayhem with her binoculars) it was not the vision I had imagined.
But the original watercolor below by Patricia van Essche of PvE Design captured that picture from last year better than any photographer. Her artistic vision...better than the vision in my mind's eye. Thank you Patricia!
