A big thank you to Jackie Hildering for sharing her beautiful photo with me as reference material for this painting!

Thank you!

The year is winding down and the holidays are fast approaching, which – ideally – means less painting and more eggnog!

This tiny miniature painting is of a scene along the Ridge Meadows Dykes in Maple Ridge BC. A beautiful spot for a frosty morning walk.
