From Our Home to Yours


I love this photo of our living room

and I wish I’d taken it.


My son Jason got this shot when he and his

family were here a couple weeks ago.

I love our log home

and Christmas just looks right here.

23′ cathedral ceilings are just made

for Christmas trees.

We also have a tree upstairs.

This is our loft/master bedroom,

and that would be Aurora, my studio assistant.

 We have some pretty awesome views from the
windows of our house.
 Now that winter is full on us,
keeping up with the snow is a regular habit.
Plow it here, push it there,
shovel some over there,
it’s all good!
We love it!
(And we really appreciate our friends
Mike and Katie who keep our driveway
plowed until we can figure
out a plowing system of our own.)

This beautiful sight is what I see every time

I open the curtains in my art studio.

It is so wonderful!

Someone asked me yesterday what our

house looked like and I realized I’m not

sure if I have a snow covered photo of

our house. I think I do but I haven’t been

successful in finding it.

Here it is in spring.

Just after the snows melted last year.

 Mark and I enjoy traveling the roads,
enjoying the beautiful scenery.
This bridge is located in Houlton, Maine.
Dirty snow shoved up to the guardrails
is courtesy of the snow plows.
I don’t think it takes away from the beauty at all.

Not far from where we live.

Everything is covered with snow and

looks crisp and beautiful.

Christmas will be here in a couple days.

The weather app is showing snow on

Christmas Eve.


I’m thinking we are going to have

a white Christmas for sure!

Merry Christmas to you and your families!

May God richly bless you on this

holy day as we celebrate the birth of

Jesus Christ, our Savior.

Thank you for your faithfulness to me

and to my art journey.

You are my motivation and I am

so thankful for each of you!

  1. And a Merry Christmas to you & yours too. I can sense your joy at being where you are, & I share that but in the opposite direction having gone from snow to none & being far more comfortable. He knows what each one of us needs doesn't He? Thank you to you too – for your bright cheery posts in the midst of life that happens about you & for your artwork & generosity with sharing techniques & much much more…………

  3. MERRY CHRISTMAS ALICE, and thank you so much for a year full of beautiful Zentangle Art and absolutely gorgeous pictures. Would love to attempt to draw a few of your pictures, especially the last one, the farm house but would never unless you gave me permission? By the way, your Assistant is very beautiful! Of course, I love Cats! Let me know about the picture and I look forward to another artful and inspirational year.
