Light and doorways

Three small watercolours Tom did for Christmas cards.  Some of you will have seen them already, but when he asked if I could  put one of them here to wish everyone a happy Christmas, I couldn't choose, so I've posted all three.








So, with thanks and appreciation of your company, your wise and cheering words and presence, may you have light in dark corners, and doorways opening, a very happy Christmas and a hopeful New Year.

What a delight- thank you. I can feel the warmth of the light and the possiblilties beyond the doors.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Happy Christmas, Tom and Lucy. That table lamp is warm and welcoming. You could almost read by its light. Not an easy thing to paint.

Oh! how lovely...i 'specially love that blue door.

Merry Christmas Tom, Lucy, and Molly!
And, i'm happy to add that i'm back to blogging...and have posted a card for all my friends over there. Hope you'll wend your way over when you have a moment...and know that i'll be a regular again. Seems the heart has finally found something to say again.

Happy, Happy Days to you...now and all year through!!

In this Season of Light, your paintings have caught its beauty, its warmth and welcome perfectly, Tom. Lucy, thank you for posting them, and thank you, Tom, for wanting to share them.

What gifts you two have, and what gifts to receive. Thank you.

:)

Merry Christmas!

Wonderful watercolors.

Christmas comes but once a year
And perhaps it's just as well.
With food and drink and bonhomie
Our tummy's prone to swell.

But it is a chance to tell our friends
The ones too oft neglected,
That we're glad they're there
A friendship much respected.

Thank you.
May you Christmas be merry and the New Year everything you wish for.

All three are superb. I hope that you both had an excellent day. All the best for 2010.

Oh, aren't those all lovely! Merry Christmas to you both, and Mol of course. :-)

Merry Christmas, Lucy, Tom, and Molly! Love the card, and thrilled to learn its provenance.

I love all your snow pictures! How absolutely beautiful. We've had flooding here, beautiful in its own way, with thousands of Canadian geese on the "lakes" between here and my sister's in Arkansas yesterday.

We move on Wednesday, are up to the ears in boxes now, and I haven't made it to the P.O., but still have that little something to send. Maybe it'll make it by the twelfth day of Christmas!

Thanks for all the lovely snow to look at.

How utterly beautiful...

Wishing you lots of love for 2010 and looking forward to more of your lovely words and pictures X

Tender watercolors and heartfelt words! So warming in these days between Christmas and the New Year. Einen guten Rutsch!

More family skills finished off with a marvellous flourish in the Durer-esque signature. Great decoration for a blog that - Let's keep it to just one word - lives.

So where can I buy a set of those lovely cards? So very evocative!

Bee said...

These are really lovely. Such a delicate touch, and the colours are luminous. I think that I probably like the light in the window best; we are on the outside looking in, and you are the glowing lamp! I've been envious (for two years now), that Tom helps with the Christmas cards . . . and now to discover that he designs them as well!

Thanks so much for your blog friendship, Lucy. You really enrich my life.
